Georgia Signs 
Military Accord 
And Re-enters 
Russian Sphere 

By Fred Hiatt 

H ashinvion Post Service 

MOSCOW — The leaders of Russia and 
Georgia signed a treaty of friendship and mili- 
tary cooperation on Thursday that is intended 
to bring the small, strife-torn nation in the 
Caucasus back into Moscow's sphere of influ- 
ence. 

The agreement would allow Russia to main- 
tain three military bases in Georgia and calls 
for Russian forces to help train ana equip a new 
Georgian Army. The Russian defense minister, 
Pavel S. Grachev, said the three bases, housing 
fighter and bomber planes and marine landing 
forces for the Black Sea Fleet, would be set up 
by July 1. 

But in the face of overwhelming opposition 
in the Russian parliament, President Boris N. 
Yeltsin said he would noL immedia tely submit 
the overall treaty for ratification. Georgia’s 
perilous position, which has made Russian leg- 
islators wary of a close allian ce, was under- 
scored when its deputy defense minister was 
killed in a bomb attack only hours before Mr. 
Yeltsin landed in the capital. Tbilisi. 

Georgia's defense minister was wounded in a 
second explosion while inspecting the site of his 
deputy’s assassination. 

Mr. Yeltsin flew to Tbilisi on Thursday 
morning to sign the treaty alongside the Geor- 
gian leader. Eduard A. Shevardnadze, a former 
Soviet minister who called Mr. Yeltsin's visit 
the most important event in 200 years of Geor- 
gian- Russian relations. 

Facing famine and riven by three separate 
civil wars, Georgia turned toils giant northern 
neighbor for economic and military help after 
two years of trying to go it alone. Opposition 
forces in Georg a accused Mr. Shevardnadze of 
selling out the nation's new independence, but 
he said Georgia had no choice. 

"We realize more and more that the tempo- 
rary coolness in relations between our stales 
was a serious mistake which must be correct- 
ed,” Mr. Shevardnadze said. 

The alliance between Russia and Georgia 
reflects a trend among many of the 13 other 
former Soviet republics to seek military and 
economic protection from Moscow’ after two 
years of declarations of sovereignly. Only two 
tiny Baltic republics. Estonia and Latvia, have 
managed almost totally to reorient their trade 
and foreign policies toward the West. 

The tread, especially after a strong showing 
by extreme Russian nationalists in parliamen- 
tary elections in December, has met with am- 
bivalence both here and abroad. Many Western 
analyse, as well as politicians within the former 
Soviet republics themselves, fear that Moscow 
will take advantage of its neighbors’ difficulties

• WASHINGTON “ For the first time, tie 
Stale Department has focused on the treatment 
of women in. its annual human-rights report, 
. and its findings are grim: forced sterilizations 
and abortions in China; Burmese aiid^ Thai girls 
coerced into prostitution; maids beaten in Sau- 
di Arabia,, and rids ritually mutilated in the 
Sudan and' Somalia. 

In pain staking detai^ -ihe report on 193 coun- 
tries issoed this week paints a dreary picture of 
day-to-day discrimination and abuse. 

In Zaire, gutls spend one- third as much time 
in school as boys and do most of the fteavy farm 

..work, . ...... 

Colombian women typically earn 30 to 40 
percent less than mem ’ . 


In Congo, adultery is illegal for women, but 
not for men. 

Indonesian women are loath to go out alone 
at night because they are widely seen as fair 
game for sexual attack. 

“We wanted to highlight the situation that 
many women face around the world," said 
Timothy E. Wirth, the State Department's 
counselor who oversees human-rights policy. 
“There is a problem of rampant discrimination 
against women, and physical abuse is just the 
most obvious example.” 

The report took a broad view of women and 
human nghts, looking not just at abuses by 
governments, but also at the indignities and 
discrimination that governments often have lit- 
tle to do with. 

But the State Department’s human-rights 


team reported progress in a handful of coun- 
tries. 

In Turkey, the government has opened shel- 
ters for battered women, and Turkish women 
are working in increasing numbers in profes- 
sions, business and government, including the 
courts- 

In Mexico, women now hold some of the 
senior positions in the Congress, and the gov-

programs on women's rights.

Clinton Lifts 
19 -Year-Old 
U.S. Embargo 
On Vietnam 

Veterans' Pleas Rejected; 
Washington Witt Set Up 
liaison Office in Hanoi' 

JnicriKitrpitai Herald Tnbune 

WASHINGTON — President BH) Clinton 
lifted the U.S. economic embargo against Viet- 
nam on Thursday, opening the way to reconcili- 
ation with a country (hat fought the United 
States to a standstill in a war that rent Ameri- 
can society. 

In announcing his initiative, broadcast from 
the White House, Mr. Clinton said he had also 
decided to “establish a liaison office in Viet- 
nam," a preliminary step toward diplomatic 
relations. 

But the president emphasized that before 
normal relations were fully established, “we 
need more progress, more cooperation and

regional cooperation. Page 5. 

Vietnam welcomes the lifting of the embargo 
as aid of an outdated relic war. Page 5. 

more answers" about American servicemen still 
missing and unaccounted for from a conflict 
that ended nearly 20 years ago. 

Mr. Clinton said that accounting was still 
foremost in his mind when it came to Vietnam 
and that the main reason for removing the trade 
embargo was that it “offers the best way of 
resolving the fate of those who are missing." 

He said that he bad met earlier in the day 
with representatives of veterans* groups to 
whom he explained his reasons. 

“Some were not convinced," he said. 

The president was acting on the unanimous 
recommendation of his national security advis- 
ers, who recently made their opinions known in 
a formal action memorandum, which the presi- 
dent timed Thursday. 

Mr. Clinton’s move was made possible politi- 
cally by a bipartisan resolution in the Senate 
last week urging him to remove the economic 
sanctions imposed against North Vietnam in 
1964 and a reunited Vietnam in 1975. 

That vote had the support of most of the 
Vietnam veterans in the Senate, including John 
S. McCain 3<L an Arizona Republican who was 
a prisoner of war for nearly six years, John F. 
Kerry of Massachusetts, a Democrat who was 
wounded three times in combat, and Bob Ker- 
rey, a Nebraska Democrat, who won the Medal 
of Honor, the nation's highest award for valor. 

Their support and the lopsided vote — 62 to 
38 — gave Mr. Clinton political cover for his 
action. Mr. Clinton needed the protection be- 
cause he avoided the military draft when he was 
of an age to go to Vietnam, and he opposed 
U-S. involvement in the conflict. 

The embargo has remained a highly charged 
issue among some veterans’ groups and the 
families of missing soldiers. Many had urged 
that the embargo be maintained because, they 
said, Hanoi has lied about U.S. prisoners. aD of 
whom were to have been returned under the 
1973 Paris peace accord that ended U.S. partic- 
ipation in the war. More than 2*100 Americans 
are listed as missing in Vietnam, 

Pressure for lifting the embargo has come 
from businesses, which want to invest in and 
sell to the fast-growing Vietnamese economy, 
as well from many who believe that Vietnam 

hasdoneaUit can to cooperate in the search for 
missing U.S. service personnel. 

In a larger sense, the debate in the adminis- 
tration and in the Congress was about whether 
the war was finally over or not. 

Senator Kerry argued that more than half of 
Vietnam’s 70 million people were under the age 
of 24 and had nothing to do with the war. 

M aintaining a U.S. trade embargo while Ja- 
pan. France and other economic competitors 
are doing business there “is an embargo against 
ourselves," Mr. Kerry was quoted by The 
Washington Post as saying. 


Critics Let Fly 
AtHosokawa 
Over Tax Plan 


By James Sterngold 

New York Tima Service 

TOKYO — Prime Minister Morihiro Ho- 
sokawa faced the harshest personal attacks of 
his tenure on Thursday, and his government 
was threatened with a split as even some close 
allies criticized his proposal for a $55 billion cut 
in income taxes and as eves larger increase in 
sales taxes after three years. 

The normally superbly controlled and highly 
visible prime minister stumbled through a news 
conference at 1 Aid. when he announced the 
proposals, which are intended to revive the 
recession-bound economy and rebalance the 
tax system. Mr. Hosokawa then all but disap- 
peared | on Thursday as business leaders and 
politicians, including some members of his own 
party, took turns lambasting the plan and Mr. 
Hosokawa's leadership. 

As represfflta lives of the parties in his gov- 
erning coalition met throughout the day to 
resolve the crisis through compromise, the only 
thing they agreed on was that the plan would 
have to be altered, particularly the proposed 
rise in the sales tax. If not, they warned, a 
□umber of cabinet members would resign, the 
budget would not be passed, and the govern- 
ment would risk collapsing. 

"Everyone makes mistakes, but then we have 
to admit it and correct them," said Masayoshi 
Takemura, the chid 1 cabinet secretary and "head 
of the New Harbinger Party, one of Mr. Ho- 
sokawa's staunchest supporters. 

In addition, some economists warned that 
even with the size of the stimulus measures, the

In Bonn 

Another Minister 
From East Quits 


By Craig R. Whitney 

New fork Tima Serrice 

BONN — Rainer Ortleb. one of 

only two remaining cabinet minis- 
ters from Bast Germany in Chan- 
cellor Helmut Kohl’s coalition gov- 
ernment resigned Thursday, citing 
health problems. 

Mr. Ortleb, 49, a member of the 
small Free Democratic Party, who 
was minister of education, had 
been ill with circulatory and respi- 
ratory ailments since late last year. 

He was the 10th minister in the 
past 12 months to resign. 

Mr. Kohl's Christian Democrat- 
ic alliance is running far behind the 
Social Democratic opposition in 
public opinion polls, a bad sign for 
the government coalition in a year 
that will see 19 stale, local and 
national elections culminating with 
a parliamentary election on Oct. 
16. 

With unemployment expected to 
rise this year to beyond id percent, 
4 milium people, and public sector 
debt now at a record of more than 
5815 trillion, the Christian Demo- 
crats have lost some of the reputa- 
tion for conservative government 
that has kept the coalition in power 
since 1982. 

The Social Democrats have been 
moving from the left back to the 
center under a new leader, Rudolf 
Schaming, 46, premier of Rhine- 
land- Palatinate. Polls predict that 
if the national election were held 
tomorrow, they would win 38 per- 
cent of the vote, compared with 29 
to 33 percent for the Christian 
Democrats. 

The Christian Democrats won 
43.8 percent of the vote in the last 
election in December 1990, just af- 
ter the unification of the country, 
for which Mr. Kohl was able to 
claim most of the credit. 

Nearly half those polled in a re- 
cent tdevison survey said they ex- 
pected the Social Democrats to 
win, Mule only 17 percent thought 
the Christian Democrats would.

KIEV — The Ukrainian parlia- 
ment moved closer to unclear dis- 
armament Thursday by removing 
conditions on ratification of the 
START-1 agreement, but it post- 
poned the main step of adhering to 
the Nuclear Nonproliferation 
Treaty. 

Deputies implicitly approved an 
agreement signed in Moscow last 
month by the presidents of 
Ukraine, Russia and the United 
States offering Kiev SI Whan in 
compensation and security guaran- 
tees for giving up its weapons. 

But the failure to join the 1968 
treaty as a nonnuclear slate was 
certain to displease the United 
Stales and other Western countries 
anxious ai what they see as recaldr 


fense comminee. The next step is 
for Ukraine to join the ncwprobf or- 
ation treaty, he said. 

Other deputies urged caution 
during the debate, suggesting it 
would hurt Ukraine's interests. 

“We cannot join," said Yuri 
Kostenko, environment adnata. 
and head of a commission mat ex- 
amined START-1 for more than a. 
year. 

"We would lose our right to 
chum the weapons as our proper- 
ty,” besaid. “Russia can say it is its 
own property, and we would lose 
ah our ™*rh to compensation.” 

Mr. Kravchuk said signature of 
the Moscow accord had allowed 
Ukraine to emerge from isolation.

around the world cannot under-

Downward Trend for Asylum Seekers 

» err * , n r r i 


Reuters 

BONN — The number of foreigners seeking 
refuge in Germany con turned to drop last month, 
six months after Bonn imposed tough limits on 
political asylum, the Interior Ministry said on 
Thorsday. 

The ministry said the number of refugees, most 
of them from Eastern Europe, were less than 
13,200 last month. 

That was down from more than 14,000 in De- 
cember and a 64 percent drop from 36J00 in 
January of last year. 


Bonn limited what had been Europe’s most 
liberal asylum law after a rising tide of refugees 
came under attack by neo-Nazi and racist gangs 
after German unity in 1990. 

The law made it much harder to apply for 
asylum and gave authorities more powers to order 
speedy deportations. 

The limits reduced the number of asylum seek- 
ers last year by more than 25 percent, down to 
323,000 — the first annual reduction in years. 


“an important step which will 
speed the beginning of real disar- 
mament. 

“But the president's proposal 
was not fully accepted,” he added. 
“We are not entirely satisfied." 

Mr. Kravchuk hod urged parlia- 
ment to drop 13 conditions at- 
tached to the START-1 agreement 
in November and join toe treaty, 
saving Ukraine otherwise faced iso- 
lation and rain. 

Deputies approved by a wide 
margin two points of a resolution 
acknowledging that the Moscow 
accord satisfied the conditions and 
authorizing the government to pro- 
ceed with the provisions of 
STTART-1. 

It also accepted the Lisbon pro- 
tocol appended to STTART-1 saying 
Ukraine had to join the nonprolif- 
eration pact as soon as possible. 
Bnt a danse on Ukraine joining it 
did not receive enough votes to be 
included in tbe resolution.

that the government has been given 
the right to implement START-1 
without conditions,” said Valentyn

WASHINGTON — The Business Roundtable, 
representing 200 of IhcnationYfcrgest companies, 
has voted tcrsapport thehealttraretaispcatsored 
by Representative Janies Cooper, Democa^ of 
Tennessee, despite a week of in tense lobbying by 
President Bill 'Clinton,-. Ins wife and top cabinet 
officials to peisnade the group to hoJdoff. 

The Roundtable's po&y committee ignored 
White House entreaties arid voted to make the 
Cooper plan the “starting point” in its n^Otia- 
tions with Congress. 4 *Il is bmlt around market 
mechanisms, as opposed 'icrreguktian,-” said John 
Ong, cttrf execunyeofficCT of B. F. Goodrich Co. 


Mr. Ong said the group believed that the Clin-, 
ion administration’s plm "has the potential to

meat programs.” 

“it also seeks to control costs — 
meat radiation of die health-care i

significant maority” adds to the nwocnlumMr.

said Wednesday night after the Roundtable vote.

nior adviser, expressed dis^pcwtiMnt m to* 
vote. “It was a vote, unfortunately, led Md influ- 
enced by the insurance interests and others wno 
are wedded to the status quo," he said. 

But an administration health-care s pokesm an, 
Jeff EBfir, said, “The president is a lot mow con-

multibillion-dollar sweetener in the Clinton 
health-care bill for amo manufacturers and steet-

off an endorsement of the Cooper bill, officials 

said. 

Administration leaders feared that “if vou lose 
big business now, it becomes acceptable for other 

groups with problems to bolt,” said one adviser. 
Tf the dam breaks toward Cooper, the White 
House could drown in people with doubts, ana 
that would create a bad political dynamic of its

free-for-all preview of the coming congressional 
debate. 


Congressional aides said the Cooper bih ap- 
peared to have more support than Mr. Climon s 
among commitiee members. The vote in the com- 
mitiee is viewed as politically symbolic because 
the committee is scheduled to be the first of five 
major congressional panels to mark up bealth-care 
legislation. 

The Business Roundtable is made up of 200 
chief executives from a cross section of the na- 
tion's Fortune 500 companies. Its support of any 
bill is remarkable given the divergent and some- 
times diametrically opposed interests of its mem- 
ber companies. 


The Clinton and Cooper plans share many na- 
tures. including insurance reform prana iJM i and 
the use of purchasing cooperatives 
pool their market clout to get lower-pnced msur- 
ance. Both bills combine government re^uw 
and incentives to increase competition in toe ma^ 
ket to curb health costs and make insurance more 

affordable.

But Mr. Cooper's bill rejects Mr. Clmton'sr^- 
ance on employers to finance coverage for 

and gpveramem-imposed limits on msmancepre- 
miums to hold down costs. Instead, the Cooper 
plan focuses on bringing down health costs “ 
more people can afford to buy insurance. It uses* 
change in the tax code — limiting the value of 

health benefits that are tax^Jeducnble — to make 
consumers more price sensitive.

the University of Chicago, said Mrs. Clinton s 
position raises questions about her professional 
conduct. 


In Ihe other case, the firm’s senior partner, 
Webster Hubbell now the No. 3 official at toe 
Justice Department, was paid by the govern- 
ment in 1989 to settle litigation against a firm 
accused of negligence in toe failure of Madison 
Guaranty Savings and Loan in Arkansas. 

The firm, including Mrs. Clinton, had done 
legal work for the S&L before its failure. 


“A^wyer is required to represent toe interest 
erf his client zealously he said. “There is a

substantial question about whether an attorney 
was representing a client zealously if toe oppo- 
nent of the client is someone with whom toe 
attorney had a political, financial and personal 

relationship.” _ 

A spokesman for the U.S. agency, David 
Barr told toe Tribune that its attorneys are 
trying to find records on the rase in order to

worked, notified it of any potential conflict of

HThere is a substantial 
question about whether an 
attorney was

Agency officials have also started an investi- 
gation of this case. 

In toe Lasater case, toe settlement was 

readied in 1987. . 

Whether he got off cheaply at toe expense ot 
taxpayers depends on his assets then and toe 
strength of evidence against him. 


Mr. Lasater is a convicted drug dealer who 
ran a bond trading firm. .... 

He signed deals with several limits, including 
First American Savings and Loan in the Chica- 
go suburb of Oak Brook, to trade Treasury 

bond futures. „ JW . , .

WASHINGTON - Top- 
selling prescription drugs typi- 
cally cost much more in the 
United Slates than in Britain, 
where drug company profits 
are limited under a national 
health program, the General 
Accounting Office says. 

Drug company executives 
challenged many of toe find- 
ings, but mernbHs of Congress 
died the report as evidence 
that toe government, should 
impose some restraints on 
drug prices, as President Bill 
Clinton bas proposed. 

The General Accounting 
Office, an investigative arm of 
Congress, said factory price 
for 77 frequently dispensed 
drugs were 60 percent higher 
in toe United States than m 
Britain in 1992. For 47 of these 
drugs, it said in its report 
Wednesday, U.S. prices were 
more than twice as high as 
those in Britain. 

Auditors and economists 
from toe accounting agency 
said the price differentials 
were smaller for new drugs 
than for older products. In 
bringing new drugs to market 
in recent years, manufacturers 
say they have tried to set simi- 
lar prices in all the industrial- 
ized countries. 

Representative Henry A. 
Waxman, Democrat of Cali- 
fornia. chairman of toe Energy 
and Commerce subcommittee 
on health, said Britain’s expe- 
rience showed it was possible 
to have lower drug prices and 

a “thriving research-based 
pharmac eutical industry." Mr. 
Waxman requested toe study. 

Drugs in toe study were 
chosen from a list of toe 200 
products most frequently dis- 
pensed in 1991. The auditors 
focused on 77 products avail- 
able in toe same form and 
strength in Britain and toe 
United States.

Egypt’s Secular Society Reels 

And Fundamentalist Cultural Offensive Gains 


By Youssef M. Ibrahim 

New York Tunes Service 

CAIRO — With their guns and 
explosives, Muslim militants have' 
destroyed Egypt’s tourist industry., 
scared away investors and halted 
the 20-year march toward democ- 
racy and economic liberalization. 

But the more serious threat, 
many Egyptians say, is the assault 
by Musum iheocrats on secularist 

traditions. 

While the government has 
fought with some success to con- 
tain the violence by militant Mus- 
lim groups, who have killed offi- 
cials, police officers, Christians and 
occasionally tourists, fundamental- 
ist social and religious groups con- 
tinue to gain ground in imposing 
Islam in education, the press, 
courts and the arts. 

The cultural offensive, backed 
by the implicit threat of terrorism, 
has become the Islamists’ main ac- 
tivity in their quest to reshape 
Egypt into an Islamic republic. 

in December, a fundamentalist 
member of parliament, Galal 
Gharib, publicly accused the minis- 
ter of culture, Farouq Hosni. of 
publishing “nude pornographic" 
pictures in government reviews. He 
was angry about a Gustav Klimt 
painting of Adam and Eve. 

Mr. Gharib, accompanied by a 
chorus of enthusiastic supporters in 
Parliament, went on to denounce 
virtually all foreign art and culture 
in Egypt, particularly from the 
West, including an Egyptian adap- 
tation of a play by Bertolt Brecht, 
the Culture Ministry's sponsorship 
of ballet schools, movie festivals, 
and translations of foreign litera- 
ture, and even the works of secular 
Egyptian writers like Naguib Mah- 
fouz, the Nobel laureate. 

“When someone attacks some- 
thing Kle e a Klimt painting and 
ballet," said Mr. Hosni, an artist 
who has been the culture minister 
for seven years, “what they are say- 
ing is that they want to shut down 
Egypt, turn the lights off and close 
our minds to the international heri- 
tage of culture." 

But instead of ignoring Mr. 
Gharib's demand. Mr. Hosni back- 
led, agreeing to allow conservative 
Islamic scholars at A1 Azhar, the 
thousand-year-old state religious 


university in Cairo, to renew — 
and reject — books scheduled for 
publication by his ministry. Succes- 
sive governments, anxious to pre- 
serve a separation between Islam 
and the state, had denied the uni- 
versity such power. 

In January. Mr. Mahfooz re- 
sponded with a declaration, signed 
by scores of Egyptian writers and 
artists, describing die assault as 
“cultural terrorism." But his plan 
to lead a protest march to par&a- 
ment was aborted by the govern- 
ment, which feared that the pro- 
testers would criticize not only the 
fundamentalists but also govern- 
ment compromises with the funda- 
mentalists. 

The Islamists have been accom- 
modated in numerous cases over 
the last five years. 

In March 1993. a fundamental- 
ist-dominated academic committee 
at Cairo University denied full pro- 
fessorship to a scholar, Nasr Ha- 
mid Abuzeid, whose thesis on Is- 
lamic writing in the 8th century was 
found to include "discussions re- 
sembling atheism.” 

The ruling made Mr. Abuzeid a 
target for radicals who had tailed a 
well-known Egyptian writer, Farag 
Foda, in 1992 after religious figures 
called him an apostate. 

Indicating bow high and how far 
fundamentalists have risen within 
the stale apparatus, those accused 
of Irfllmg Mr. Foda were defended 
in court by Sheikh Ahmad Ghazali, 
one of Egypt's most senior theolo- 
gians. He is an official of A1 Azhar 
and thus a government employee. 

Mr. Ghazali testified in court 
that Mr. Foda and “secularists" 
like him are apostates who should 
be put to death. He added that if 
the government failed to cany out 
that “duty,” individuals were free 
to do so. 

Other religious scholars, some 
employed by the government, free- 
ly produce and distribute hundreds 
of thousands of taped messages 
railing on M uslims to shun Chris- 
tians. On one tape. Sheikh Omar 
Abdelkafi said Muslims should not 
shak e bands with Christians, or 
wish them well an Christian holi- 
days. or walk on the same sidewalk 
with them. 

In most public schools, partial- 


‘Foreign Powers’ 
Blamed in Iran Plot 

By Barry James 

Iniemommol Herald Tribune 

Official Tehran radio said Thursday that a man tried to assassi- 
nate President Hasfaemi Rafsanjani earlier this week in a plot it 
described as involving foreign powers. 

Iranian television, linking the alleged shooting with an outbreak of 
rioting in the eastern city of Zahedan, said such incidents “can only 
be the work of foreign powers” like the Central Intelligence Agency 
and the Israeli secret service, Mossed. 

At the same time; Jordan announced that it was asking 21 of 26 
Iranian diplomats to leave the country, in what experts said ap- 
peared to be a reaction against Tehran-fomented Islamic fundamen- 
talism in the Arab world, and Iranian attempts to block the Arab- 
Israeli peace process. The move followed the assassination of a 
Jordanian diplomat in Beirut last weekend, after King Hussein 
announced that he wanted to meet Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin of 
Israel to discuss peace. 

Middle East experts said Mr. Rafsanjani had been buffeted for 
some time by wide-scale unrest caused by worsening economic 
conditions. 

The official Iranian press agency, IRNA, said the man who tried 
to assassinate the president was a 26-year-old "moral deviant" who 
had been rqecied by the Revolutionary Guards, Iran’s Islamic 
militia, for "committmg sacrilegious activities." 

Mr. Rafsanjani was not injured in the incident. 

One report indicated that the plot was part of a religious backlash 
against the Shiite Muslim theocrats running Iran. 

In Zahedan, where the rioting connected to the reported assassina- 
tion attempt occurred, the population is predominantly Sunni Mus- 
lim, with links to nearby Pakistan and Afghanistan. 

The leading Ir anian opposition group, the Mujahidin Khalq, said 
the rioting was sparked by protests over religious persecution and 
reports of the destruction of a Sunni mosque. 

IRNA also attributed the rioting in Zahedan to foreigners, with- 
out being more specific. The agency said "anti-revolutionary" rioters 
had ripped up Iranian flags and attacked store fronts. 

Government officials in Tehran told The Associated Press that the 
violence in Zahedan might have been instigated by smugglers an- 
gered by beefed op security measures along the eastern frontier. 

Relations also nave been tense between the government and the 
Christian minority after the apparent murder of the leader of the 
Assemblies of God churches, Haik Hovsepian. Andrew Whitley, 
executive director of the human-rights group Middle East Watch in 
New York, said the clergyman’s death appeared to be a classic 
“disappearance" carried out by the security forces. 

The killing followed the death sentence on another Christian 
clergyman for apostasy [com Islam. The sentence was commuted 
under international pressure. 

"The evangelical church is the only minority that has not gone 
along with the government campaign to declare to the outride world 
that everything is fine for minorities in the Islamic republic,” Mr. 
Whitley said. 

Details of the alleged attempt on Mr. Rafsanjanfs life were 
sketchy. Reports said the gunman, who is alleged to have fired about 
five shots from a small-caliber pistol, had been arrested along with 
his accomplices. The reported shooting took place in Tehran during 
2 ceremony marking the 15 lb anniversary of the return of the 
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini from exile. 

“Clearly the economic situation in Iran is very poor.” said Sami 
Znbaida or London University, author of “Islam, the People and the 
State." 

“There have been demonstrations and riots in the big dries for the 
past couple of years." he added. "But my impression is that Rafsan- 
jani is still fairly in control." 

Mr. Whitley said there did not appear to be a dear pattern in the 
events of recent days other than the fact that Mr. Rafsanjani is being 
battered on a number of fronts. 

“He was re-elected with a lower majority this year," Mr. Whitley 
said, "and I think he is finding that he does not have the authority 
over the security forces, in particular, that he had hoped for.” 


GEORGIA: Treaty With Russia 


CootiDued from Page 1 

to begin dictating policy and inter- 
fering in tbeir affairs. 

For their part, Russian politi- 
cians are eager to defend the inter- 
ests of Rusrian-speakers in “the 
near abroad,” as other framer Sovi- 
et republics are known here. But 
they are reluctant to assume re- 
sponsibility for the collapsing 
economies and ethnic strife now 
weakening Russia's neighbors, es- 
pecially when Russia faces serious 
problems of its own. 

The leaders of every faction in 


larly in the south of Egypt, funda- 
mentalist teachers have imposed 
the veil on girls as young as 6 and 
altered schoolbooks to emphasize 
Islam. In some places, especially 
Asyut, a fundamentalist bastion, 
Islamists have virtually taken con- 
trol of education all the way to the 
university level. 

Islamists have also taken over 
professional groups, induding en- 
gineering, medical and legal associ- 
ations. “ Islami c medical dimes,” 
for example, are springing up. Sup- 
ported by the Muslim Brother- 
hood, a political organization 
whose social programs are tolerat- 
ed by the authorities, the clinics 
offer inexpensive but poor medical 
care while serving as recruiting cen- 
tos for adherents. 

It was the attack in parliament, 
however, that crystallized the fun- 
damentalist thrust, moving a grow- 
ing number of intellectuals to coun- 
terattack and setting off a debate 
between Islamists and secularists 
that is stiB under way. 

The Islamists argue that secular- 
ists have long practiced their own 
brand of intellectual terrorism. 
Fahray Howcadi. one of the main 
proponents of an Islamic state, has 
accused secularists of having ig- 
nored Egypt’s deep Islamic and 
Arab roots as they pursued a com- 
munion with Western culture. 

El Sayed Yasseen, director of A1 
Abram Strategic Studies Center, is 
rate of a group of Egyptian intellec- 
tuals who see the attack on secular 
culture and thinking as part of a 
campaign to isolate Egypt from its 
diversified heritage, winch includes 
Pharaonic, Hefienic, Roman, Arab, 
Coptic. Byzantine, French and 
British influences. 

“What is ‘damned atheist 
Western culture' the Islamists talk 
about anyway?” Mr. Yasseen 
asked “It is a range of a**anrmi«n»rf 
values and systems evident in our 
laws, our constitution, our modem 
education, our multiparty system, 
our free press, our art, radio, and 
television. In short, it is the collec- 
tion of civQmng accomplishments 
that Egypt has acquired over the 
ages." 

“AD these groups,” Mr. Yasseen 
said “notwithstanding their diver- 
sity, have only one aim from which 
they wfl] not be diverted namely, 
to bring about the collapse of the 
present secularist state m Egypt, 
replacing it with a religious author- 
ity based on religious texts and un- 
der slogans that only God, not 
men, wffl rule.” 

Gama] Ghitani. editor of Cre- 
ativity, the publication that repro- 
duced the Klimt painting, said: 
“Unless every owner of a pen or a 
brush and every innovator stands 
up to such attacks, now one will be 
able to write a word compose a 
tune, or paint a color.” 

But Mr. Yaseen and Mr. Ghitani 
are largely preaching to other intel- 
lectuals. and their voices are re- 
strained by the government. Trying 
to woo nonviolent fundamentalists 
in order to fight the radicals, the 
government continues to give 
ground 



De Klerk Digs for Votes on Tough New Ground 


By Paul Taylor 

Washington Fast Service 

JOHANNESBURG — As he 
entered a cavernous ball for a 
speech that officially started his re- 
election campaign. President Fre- 
derik W. de Klerk was greeted by a 
crowd that chanted a new version 
of the traditional black South Afri- 
can political salute: “Viva de 
Klerk! Viva!” 

Then they sang, haltingly and 
off-key, the traditional black South 
African national anthem and 
waved the “new" National Party’s 
flag, whose colors and design had 
been reviewed by traditional black 
witch doctors. 

For 42 years, the National Party 
government presided over the le- 
galized oppression of blacks. For 
the last four years, the government 
has been dismantling that apart- 
heid system, and now — in the first 
election of the post-apartheid era 
—■the former oppressors are trying 
to reap the fruits of their conver- 
sion from the people they op- 
pressed. 

But anthems, chants and flags 
notwithstanding, the strategy does 
not seem to be taking them very far. 
With less than three months to go 
until Sonlh Africa's Fust all-race 
election on April 26-28, Mr. de 
Klerk's projected vote total from 
blacks stands at 1 percent, accord- 
ing to a national opinion survey. 

South Africa’s new political de- 
mographics leave him no choice 
but to work hardest fra the votes he 
is least likely to get. Until this year, 


blacks could not vote. Now, they 
make up roughly three-quarters of 
the expected electorate, with the 
remainder divided among whites 
(13 percent), mixed-race (8 per- 
cent) and In dians (3 percent). 

If Mr. de Klerk is discouraged by 
his predicament, be does not let it 
show. He timed the campaign kick- 
off to coincide with the anniversary 
of the speech he made four yean 
ago announcing the end of apart- 
heid and the release of Nelson 
Mandela, the African National 
Congress leader, after decades in 
prison. 

His speech Wednesday night was 
self-congratulatory and tmapolo- 
getically partisan. It was the Na- 
tional Party, Mr. de Klerk said. 


that had 

hdd and freed all the 
South Africa.’ 

It is the National Party, he said. 
that “has immense experience in 
the art of government.* 

It is the African National Con- 
gress that is “secretly controlled by 
communists, militan ts and extrem- 
ists." 

His audience was roughly one- 
third black, and though there was a 
sense of the reot-a-crowd uneasi- 
ness that always seems to hover 
around the edges of National Party 
events in black areas, some of the 
blacks applauded lustily. 

“When people ask me bow 1 can 


I tell them they would never have 
gotten Mandela if it wasn’t for de 


Klerk,” said Honest YBriziting, 27, 
a National Party organizer in the 
frinrir township of Soweto. “The 
trouble withtbe ANC is they are 
communist, and they will rum the 
economy." 

Mr. Vflriritmg’s modus operandi 
in SoWeto illustrates the challenges 
the National Party faces in black 
areas. He said he must hold meet- 
ings in secret for fear of intimida- 
tion and retaliation by ANC sup- 
porters. And he concedes he works 
for the National Party as much for 
money as love. It is paying him

increase over what he had been

A Reversal on Double-Ballot System 


Washington Fast Service 

PRETORIA — The African National Congress, 
bowing to pressure from political and business 
leaders, reversed itself on Thursday and proposed 
a double-ballot electoral system in an effort to 
bring white right and black homeland parties into 
the nation's April election. 

The ANC and government also offered to 
amend South Africa's interim constitution to allow 
for original taxing powers for fhe regions, another 
of the demands of the so-caDed Freedom Alliance 
of conservative black and white groups. 

Negotiators for the alliance, which is threaten- 
ing to boycott and obstruct the elections, say they 
would study the proposal and respond next week. 


The alliance consists of the Zulu-based Inkatha 
Freedom Party, the hotmdand government of Bo- 
phuthatswana and the Afrikaner VoDcsfronL It is

JAPAN: 

Fierce Criticism 

Continued from Page 1 
economy has grown so weak in re- 
cent months that the package 
might simply halt the deterioration 
rather than spark a healthy re- 
bound. 

“This plan would simply help 
avoid negative growth,” said Hxro- 
hiko Okumura, chief economist at 
the Nomura Research Institute. 
“At best, well start to see some 
improvement in the economy to- 
ward the second half of the year." 

Mineko Sasaki- Smith, an econo- 
mist in Tokyo with Morgan Stanley 
Japan, said that by her estimates 
only about half of the income tax 
reductions would be spent, with the 
rest likely to be saved by consum- 
ers. That could make the subse- 
quent increase in sales taxes even 
more burdensome and reduce the 
overall benefits to the economy. 

Mr. Hosokawa apparently took 
some members of his coalition gov- 
ernment by surprise with his an- 
nouncement that be bad decided to 
introduce the 555 billion redaction 
in income and local taxes, most of 
it retroactive to January. 

The tax cut was part of a huge 
economic stimulus package that is 
expected to include about S83 bil- 
lion in public works spending, low- 
cosi loans to businesses and other 
spending increases. 

The economic package was sup- 
posed to have been announced 
Thursday afternoon, but the re- 
lease was delayed because of the 
tax-cut uproar, disappointing busi- 
nessmen and the financial markets. 

The delay could further strain 
relations with the United States, 
which has been pushing for a big 
stimulus plan as a means of draw- 
ing in more imports and reducing 
Japan's trade surpluses. 

Mr. Hosokawa is scheduled to 
meet President Bill Clinton in 
Washington on Feb. II, and the 
trade agreement they are supposed 
to conclude there is sail far from 
completion. The econ om ic stimu- 
lus plan was intended as the one 
unequivocal sign that the Japanese 
government was serious about re- 
ducing the trade surplus. 

What angered many political 
and business leaders was the fact 
that Mr. Hosokawa rejected the ad- 
vice of his own coalition partners 
and accepted the arguments of Fi- 
nance Ministry bureaucrats in in- 
sutingon the increase in sales taxes 
to cover the loss of income-tax rev- 
enue. 

Mr. Hosokawa said the 3 percent 
national sales tax, which has been 
extremely unpopular since it was 
introduced five years ago, would 
rise to 7 percent as of April 1, 1997. 


BOSNIA: Croatian Army Faces U.S. and Europe With Another Dilemma WOMEN: 


Continued from Page 1 
lariy Germany with well known 
sympathies for Croatia, has no 
stomach to follow through on the 
American threat of sanctions. 

EU foreign ministers are expect- 
ed to take up the issue at their next 
meeting in Brussels on Monday. 
But the prospects for any agree- 
ment appear dose to nil. 

[Italy warned Croatia cm Thurs- 
day that it would face economic 
sanctions and isolation in Europe if 
its regular troops were proved to be 
fighting in Bosnia. Reuters report- 
ed. Foreign Minister Beniamino 
Andreatta spelled out the threat as 
Denmark announced that it would 
formally propose sanctions against 
Croatia' at the Monday meeting of 
EU foreign m i nisters. 

[Mr. Andreatta said that a Bosni- 
an Croatian offensive supported by 
externa! forces “can only lead to an 
economic response from the inter- 


national community." Mr. An- 
dreatta spoke after meeting with 
the Croatian foreign minister, Mate 
Granic, in Rome.] 

The question facing the Union 
and the United States is whether 
more sanctions wQl help achieve 
tbeprimaiy objective of promoting 
a peace settlement. There is little 
controversy about their economic 
effectiveness. 

The series of economic and fi- 
nancial measures imposed on Ser- 
bia in 1992-93 have largely de- 
stroyed its economy, creating the 
worst case of hyperinflation in Eu- 
rope since the German Weimar re- 
public. 

But so far sanctions have yielded 
no concrete political dividends by 
way of an agreement, although they 
may have helped contain the Bosni- 
an conflict by occupying Serbian 
minds and energies with issues of 
day-to-day survival. 


In fact, (he international media- 
tors Lord Owen and ThorvaldStot 
ten berg are no longer blaming 
President Slobodan MDosovic of 
Serbia for the deadlock over a 
peace settlement Instead, they re- 
gard the Muslim-led Bosnian gov- 
ernment as the main obstacle. 

This is because the Bosnians 
have refused to accept the Serb: 
proposed territorial outlines for 
three ethnically constituted repub- 
lics. The Serbs are ready to give one 
third of Bosnia to the Muslims but 
not to include many at the areas 
they “ethnically cleansed" of die 
Muslim population. 

The Bosnian government has 
said it it determined to fight on to 
take bad: these lands, push the 
Bosnian Croatian forces out of cen- 
tral Bosnia and secure a corridor 
through Croat-held territory to the 
Adriatic Sea. 

It is to tins Muslim offensive that 


bom Croats to bolster the Bosnian 
Croatian forces. 

Bosnian Serbian forces have also 
ordoed a genaal mobilization and 
began conscripting hundreds of 
Muslim, Croat ana Serb refugees 
from Bosnia who have been living 
in Serbia. The UN High . Commis- 
sioner far Refugees has denounced 
this conscription as a. violation of 
Geneva convention provisions on 
the treatment of refugees. 

But there is little HkeHhood that 
the UN Security CouncS will seek 
to impose further sanctions on Ser- 
bia just because of Bosnian refu- 
gees are being conscripted. 

Rather, the issue bang ponder- 
ing by the EU and the United 
States is what effect economic, or 
diplomatic, sanctions might have 
on Croatia’s behavior.

happened to be in Washington this 
week (and had what a senior offi-

defuse the ill wflj. 

The problem, said one person 
involved in the back and forth, is 
not that “we have substantive dif-

has urged the postponement of a 
road and rail project 16 kilometers 
long linking Sweden and Denmark 
while its environmental effects are 
studied. 

The German Transport Ministry 
asked Denmark why the two na-

ish and Swedish officials said, how- 
ever, that the German note 
predated the derision that the 
bridge would go ahead only if it 
were safe for the environment.

Parliament" 

And so in acting unilaterally and 
against British wishes that were 
dearly spelled out in advance, be 
said, it was as if Washington was 
saying that “none of that really 
counts to us." 

Relations with the Clinton ad- 
minstration began over a year ago 
on what an official in 10 Downing 
Street conceded Thursday was a 
“sour note." He was referring to 
the discovery that strategists from 
Mr. Major's Conservative Party 
were actually working in the presi- 
dential campaign advising the Re- 
publicans. 

Then there were press stories 
that the British Home Office had 
agreed to search through its files to 
see if there were any documents on 
Mr. Clinton from his years as a 
Rhodes scholar at Oxford and an 
anti- Vietnam War protester. What 
was presumably being looked for 
was an application to change his 
nationality, which would have in- 
stantly dashed his campaign had it 
ever existed. 

There was even a report of an 
unfortunate private cable sent on 
election day from Mr. Hurd, a sea- 
soned and patrician diplomat to 
Janies A Baker, then the secretary 
of state, whom he had come to 
know well He used a hunting met- 
aphor to wish him good luck: “May 
you bring down every duck in the 
last flight of the shoot." 

Now, British officials are won- 
dering if these ducks are coming 
home to rocsL Is it possible, won- 
dered one top diplomat, that Mr. 


Clinton really bears a grudge and 
eqoys sending darts in Mr. Major's 
direction? 

They do not have to search very 
hard to find a disconcerting pat- 
tern, induding public statements 
from Washington that grate on 
British sensitivities by making 
them fed like just any other coun- 
try. Only three months ago. Secre- 
tary of State Warren M. Christo- 
pher said that Europe was “no 
longer the dominate area of the 


woi 

At the same time, Mr. Clinton 
gave an interview in which he at- 
tacked Britain and France ova 
Bosnia and singled out Mr. Major 
with an an harassing aside. Mr. 
Major had confessed privately to 
him, he said, that he could not 
the Bosnian arms 
because his government 


might fall if he did. 


Clinton has only met Mr. 
Major in a one-on-one session 
mice, in Washington on Feb. 7 last 
year. They are scheduled to meet 
again Feb. 28. what Mr. Major 
goes to Washington. 

in recent days, both British and 
American nffirfak in fo n dm have 
been quietly enumerating far re- 
porters the list of lwiw on winch 
the two countries have dosdy co- 
operated recently, from coordinat- 
ing efforts on a GATT agreement 
to policies on China and Russia 
ana the Partnership for Peace ar- 
rangement to bring Eastern Euro- 
pean countries within NATO's 
member- 


Ironkaily. both sides have al so 


pointed cot that a profound differ- 
ence still exists is the approach to 
Bosnia. Bri tain, which. has 2300 
troops on die ground there, op- 
poses air strikes and the lifting of 
the arms embargo as does France: 
The diplomats mention this as if to 
say: You see, this is the kind of 
disagreement we should be having 
and when we do its not the end of 
the workL 

But Ireland is different For one

closely on the situation in Thai- 
land, especially on the 200,000 to 
500,000 prostitutes who human-

country. 

The report notes how procurers

women an advance a gainst their 
future earnings, money that is fre- 
quently used to build a new house.

a Wind eye to the abuse of women 
— and how in many countries the 
law itself discriminates.

PUBLISHED WITH THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE WASHINGTON POST 


Hosokawa and Clinton 


Prime Minis ter Morihiro Hosokawa has 
partly delivered on bis pledge of political 
reform Although be had to compromise with 
the opposition Liberal Democrats, those re- 
forms that could most benefit relations with 
the United States got through. 

One reason Mr. Hosokawa decided to com- 
promise was Tokyo's need to proceed to other 
business — stimulating a stalled economy and 
addressing tough trade demands from Wash- 
ington. The U.S. trade representative, Mickey 
Kantor, is now in Tokyo pressing for agree- 
ment before Mr. Hosokawa’s Feb. 1 1 summit 
meeting with President Bill Clinton. Both 
sides agree that Japan’s huge trade surplus 
with the United States is politically untenable; 
but they differ sharply over bow to reduce it 

On one big issue, Tokyo has the better case. 
Washington wants to set numerical targets to 
measure U.S. export gains in specific indus- 
tries. For years Japanese governments have 
promised much and delivered little on remov- 
ing bureaucratic obstacles to imports. Wash- 
ington is understandably impatient for mea- 
surable results. Mr. Clinton ran for president 
on a promise of more aggressive economic 
diplomacy, and the Japanese trade surplus is 
the most prominent target. 


Economists argue that trade imbalances are 
not important, but politicians are acutely sensi- 
tive to their impact Still, there is only so much 
that governments can or should do io manage 
private trade. The Hosokawa government is 
already doing many of the right things. It has 
begun an ambitious deregulation program, and 
it is preparing a tax-cutting budget aimed at 
stimulating consumer demand. 

Tokyo accepts the goal of reducing its sur- 
plus but draws the line at setting numerical 
import targets for particular industries, like 
auto parts. It argues, rightly, that that would 
be a step back toward Japan's market-rigging 
arrangements of the past. Washington counters 
that even under this government, Japan’s trade 
surpluses keep increasing. Tokyo replies that 
almost every country swings into surplus when 
it is in a recession, and Japan is now in the 
fourth year of its worst postwar slump. 

At next week’s meeting, Mr. Clin can needs 
to find a graceful way to bad: off from his 
rhetorical excesses on numerical targets. In 
return, Mr. Hosokawa should help Mr. Clin- 
ton. meet his political needs in more construc- 
tive ways, with further deregulation and 
strong and effective fiscal stimulus.

Clinton Has 
A Sense 
Of Turn

A Temporary Italian Limp What’s That About a Cheery Prognosis for Japan? 

■ ii thnnlr ifull (m nT UiiHnlini tialv ivinivr ic AllianiV W hv thi> - C/ M- 


Since it shook itself free of Mussolini, Italy 
has been a country whose politics belonged 
naturally to the reasonable center. Its Commu- 
nists were the first to start edging away from 
Latin’s follies. Its neofascists had a musical 
comedy air, and did not get many votes. It was 
the parties of the middle that formed Italy’s 
perpetual government — but perpetual, as usu- 
al, eventually meant corrupt This is why the 
hole in the center erf next month’s post-comp- 
tion-scandal election is so unnatural Italy will 
not be Italy if it stays unfilled. 

Unfilled it still is. SDvio Berlusconi, the tele- 
vision tycoon who last week presented himself 
as the man to plug the gap, hardly lodes the 
part. His persona] ambition is dear, his politi- 
cal philosophy much less so. The party he 
would tike as an ally, the Northern League, is 
keeping its distance. So are most of his fellow 
industrialists. The soccer-cheer name of his 
party, Forza Italia (“Let's go. Italy!”), suggests 
that he may be more singarmw than statesman. 

The man who has the best moral claim to 
fill the hole, Mario Segni, seems to have the 
opposite weakness. It was Mr. Segni who 
bravely and skillfully led (be fight to give Italy 
a better voting system last year. Since then he 
has not seemed to know how to build a new 
political force. First he leaned inconclusively 
toward the remnants of the disgraced Chris- 
tian Democrats. Then he made an overture to 
the Northern League and was rebuffed. It 
would be fine if by the time of the vote on 
March 27 and 28 he had made himself lode 
like a natural leader, but it seems unlikely. 

The rest of the old center is mainly nibble. 
Most of the ex-Christian Democrats now call 
themselves the Popular Party, a name that by 
March 29 may sound as ironic in Italian as it 
does in English. Some of their colleagues, 
finding even that much change unacceptable, 
go into the election as the Christian Demo- 
cratic Center. Both wfll find it hard to shake 
off the Christian Democrats' shame. 

As things stand, the election's probable 


winner is the alliance led by the (ex-Commu- 
nist) Democratic Party of the Left. That is not 
necessarily a disaster. The Democratic Left 
has said the right, responsible things about 
economic policy in the past few weeks. Its 
abandonment of Marx and Lenin is genuine. 
Yet, like any other left-leaning party with 
trade unions to keep happy, when it finds 
itself in government it is liable to be too kind 
about public spending and less than whole- 
hearted abotu breaking up Italy’s far too big 
public sector. Italy needs a government will- 
ing to be more rigorous than that Moreover, 
the small parties with which the Democratic 
Left goes into the election are uneasy part- 
ners. and a government that included them 
could, like Japan's, prove wobbly. 

The Democratic Left is one part of Italy’s 
political future, but something more is need- 
ed. It wiQ not be provided by the (ex-neofas- 
dst) National Alliance, which may collect 
quite a lot of votes in the sooth of (be country 
bat is anathema in the richer, modernized 
north. Nor is the Northern League by itself 
the necessary balance to (he Democratic Left. 
It is still too rooted in its own region, and even 
there did not do as well as most people had 
expected in last year’s local elections. 

To be a proper modem democracy, in 
which governments change when the people 
wish. Italy needs a two-sided new center. One 
party or group of parties will emphasize brisk 
administration and economic efficiency: the 
center-right. The other will emphasize com- 
passion for those who cannot enjoy the fruits 
of that efficiency: the center-left. 

Italy may have begun to find the makings of 
the latter, in the de-Communized Democratic 
Left. It still has to find its new center-right, 
the standard-bearer of efficiency and eco- 
nomic growth. If it does not find it before 
March 27, it most not fail to do so before the 
next general election. Italy needs two good 
legs to walk confidently into the future.

T OKYO — The stock market is recovering. The 
politics have been reformed. The government 
promises strong anti-recessionary stimuli. The Ja- 
pan scenario gets rosier by the day. 

Or does it? Take the political scene first. 

Few seem to realize that the political reform bills 
passed with much drama last week carry a lethal 
time bomb. Tbev may promise stronger anti-comip- 
tion laws. Bui by replacing the f ormer multi-seat 
electorate system with single-seal electorates, Tokyo 
moves to a dangerously unstable two-party system. 

Independents and the small reformist parties 
will be largely wiped oul The power broken that 
flourish in Japan's still semi-ieudal society will 
find the going even easier than before. 

True, the previous multi-seal system also had 
disadvantages, since it faced candidates from ri- 
val factions in the then ruling Liberal Democratic 
Party to waste large sums of iD -gotten money in 
r unning against each other. Pressure by the deaner 


By Gregory Clark 



LDP factions for changes in the system led to the 
lestabl 


LDP defections that led to the establishment of the 
present anti-LDP coalition government. 

But among the defectors and now playing a key 
role in the ruling coalition, was a group headed by 
former LDP power broker Ichiro Ozawa. Mr. 
Ozawa is no reformer. He was a key member of the 
notoriously corrupt Tanaka-Takeshita faction, 
and a protegd of former LDP kingmaker Shin 
Kanemaru. whose involvement in recent construc- 
tion and tracking industry scandals and subse- 
quent arrest triggered recent political changes. 

But by claiming to be a reformer (his sole inter- 


est is early establishment of a two-party system), 
Mr. Ozawa and Ins supporters — the Japan Re- 
newal Party — have been able to gain a new lease 
on political life outside the LDP. As Japan moves 
doser to the system he wants, the party is now wefl 
placed to become a dominant poetical grouping. 

Inevitably there will be a confrontation between 
genuine reformers in the coalition and the Ozawa

inner splits in what 
s creation of yet another 
coalition. Hopes for political stability are remote. 

Similarly with hopes for economic recovery. 
Japan is not simply passing through the kind of 
cyclical downturn common to Western economies. 
It has been hit simultaneously by the accumulated 
tins of more than two decades of economic and 

political mismanag ement. 

The most obvious sin was grossly irresponsible 
encouragement and toleration for land and share 
booms which began back in the ’60s and carried 
asset values to stratospheric levels. Already 1,000 
trillion yen has been wiped off peak values. Fur- 
ther falls are expected. Only an economy as strong 
as Japan’s could hope to survive such a blow. 

But Japan also faces the equally savage Mow of 
yen appreciation. Decades of encouragement for 
expanded exports, chronic yen undervaluation and 
benign neglect of the domestic economy have cre- 
ated. an export-dependent economy new being 


squeezed remorselessly by even mimae nptnms in 
the ye&dcDar rale. And it is a videos squeeze— yen 
OTWfwfiftn l manufacturing cutbacks, ifamsfedc- 
Gabon, more pressure to' expand exports and cut 
imports, more pressure for yen appreciation ... 

Given the mood of Washington-Tokyo trade 
talks, the squeeze can only get woise as Washington 
resorts to the only weapon it has left — benign 
toleration of farther yen appred a fioo. 

Tokyo can of course try artificially to inflate its 
domestic economy. But planned measures will 
have doubtful impact Promised relaxation of 


wasteful bureaucratic controls, for example, will

New Threats Desperately Require New Thinking 


Let Them Go With Dignity 


C AMBRIDGE, Massachusetts — 

Not since the begriming of World 
War D has there been a Stale of the 
Union address comparable to that de- 
livered by President BiO Clinton, in 
which foreign affairs figured so very 
incidentally. If his intention was to 
provide the outlines of a “domestic 
renewal plan." the only issue known to 
be of great concern to the American 


By Stephen R. Granbard 


Sam Lewis. Clifton Wharton, Les Aspin, 
Philip Heymann — one thing that these man 
have in common is that each was pushed out 
of Bill Clinton’s government by, roughly, the 
end of its first year. But, importantly, that is 
not the only thing they have in common. There 
are two others. First is their qualifications. 

Mr. Lewis, before he came bade to govern- 
ment to accept a Clinton administration offer 
to run policy planning at the State Department, 
had served for many years as a Foreign Service 
officer and an ambassador of immense skill 
and distinction, notably in Israel; he was wide- 
ly known to be one of tbe best in the business. 

Mr. Wharton, who accepted an administra- 
tion bid to be deputy secretary of state, spent 
years working at home and abroad in the 
foreign assistance field and later went on to 
become chancellor of the State University of 
New York for 1 1 years, after that president of 
Michigan State and then bead of one of the 
nation’s largest pension and investment funds. 

Mr. Aspin. certainly one of the most know- 
ledgeable people in America on mfljtaiy af- 
fairs, relinquished the important — and irre- 
trievable — chairmanship of the House 
Armed Services Committee to become Mr. 
Gin ton's secretary of defense. 

Mr. Heymann, the most recent pushee, 
came from the Harvard Law School faculty to 
accept Mr. Clinton’s offer to be deputy attor- 
ney general. This was his third tour at the 
Department of Justice. He had been assistant 
attorney general in the Criminal Division. He 
had previously served at the State Department 
as wefl. So he brought not only scholarly legal 
credentials but considerable seasoning in gov- 
ernmental life and Justice Department affairs. 

We do not question the administration’s 
prerogative to compel the resignation of any 
of these estimable people at win, to decide 


that they are nor the right people to work with 
the other people etc. But we do strenuously 
question the tacky, whispered disparagement 
that has followed each out of office, the unfair 
scapegoating for administration-wide or, in 
some cases, merely departmental failures (for 
which their bosses presumably and miracu- 
lously bad qo responsibility). 

That is the other thing they have in common. 
There has been a kind of slug’s trail of anony- 
mous. whispered explanations of how each of 
these people was just “too academic” or “too 
disorganized” or “too slow” or “too unproduc- 
tive" to do the job. We bare to tell you: It's 
hard to credit. We believe there were personal- 
ity dashes, there was some offloading of blame 
and there was some appeasement of political or 
bureaucratic pressures in their departments. 

We will even stipulate that some of them 
may have been the wrong persons for the 
particular job, given the rest of the staffing or 
the general “chemistry" problem. But is it 
really even credible, let alone decent, to go 
about muttering these damaging, potentially 
reputation-destroying complaints about all 
four of these people who came in good faith to 
serve in Bfll Clinton’s government and who 
are by any standard among the most accom- 
plished in their field? Is it such a wonderful 
way to encourage people to come to Washing- 
ton to serve in government? 

Some of this junk is being put about by 
aides and assistants who don't know a tenth 
of what these men know and would not know 
how to judge their competence in any case. 
The president should at a minimum let the 
people he decides to force out leave with 
dignity. The underhanded trashing of them 
by people in the administration threatens 
his dignity as well. 

— THE WASHINGTON POST. 


gave the speech his handlers called for. 
If. in tbe process, he provided scant 
vision of the hazards that exist in the 
world outside tbe United States, and 
few recommendations for remedying 
those ills, his evasion cannot be said to 
be more serious than that of other 
heads of government, including those 
of die European Union. 

It is a fact that the president’s shy- 
ness about proclaiming the need for a 
“new world order” does not reflect 
simply an innate modesty, an unwill- 
tngness to use the exaggerated 
so common to his Dl-fated 
sor. Tbe errors made in the last year, 
in respect to Haiti, Somalia. Bosnia 
and other flash points, are almost 
inconsequential beside the greater er- 


ror — the failure to conceptualize 
international economic, political, 
militaiy, social and cultural relations 
in a new frame. If tbe concept of 
“partnership" is loo difficult to trans- 
late into international agreements on 
pressing issues, the concept of “alli- 
ance" may be even more antique. 

It is not the fact that the NATO 
alliance is frayed or that the United 
Nations is impotent that defines the 
international situation today; more 
important is that the most prosperous 
and stable democracies, the united 
Stales, certainly, but also Germany, 
Japan, Britain, France and Italy are 
overwhelmingly preoccupied with 
what they conceive to be their own 
compelling internal problems. 

If the greater number of those 
countries resolved decades ago the 
kinds of issues that now preoccupy 
tbe American president — providing 
universal health care, for example — 
they are beset by other conditions no 
less serious, capable of upsetting gov- 
ernments, creating strange new inter- 
nal alliances between those known to 


be disillusioned and disaffected. In 
the drcumstances, Bosnia is indeed 
distant, but so is Ukraine, not to 
speak of Korea; distant, that is, from 
London and Paris, Bonn and Rome, 
but also from Washington. 


The president’s remarks on foreign 
would be 


policy were vacuous. But it 
difficult to find a better definition of 
today’s foreign policy dilemmas in 
the speeches of other heads of gov- 
ernment or, indeed, of their foreign 
ministers. Five years after tbe begin- 
ning of tbe unraveling of the Soviet 
empire, the states of the European 
Union, like the United States, Cana- 
da and Japan, have little notion of 
what can be done to cope even with 
those fareignpolicy issues recognized 
to be compelling. 

What is to be done? There is a 
desperate need for a “foreign policy 
renewal j?lan” that acknomedges 
three baste conditions: 

m Military intervention in troubled 
areas will be thought dangerous try 
many, and not only pohtxaans, in 
democracies disinclined to risk the 


lives of thrir military Forces, even in 
numbers that would have been 
thought minimal only a decade ago; 

• Economic prosperity is the one 
universally acknowledged good, and 
is dependent on social peace being 
m a in tai n ed in a worid where the poor 
are many tunes more numerous than, 
the economically secure; 

• The need for an “mtdlectual rev- 
olution” in 1994, comparable to the 
one that occurred in the five years 
after World War n, is flbsorotdy 
mandatory, and has not occurred. ' 

The thane of intervention needs to 
be re-examined, not only with refer- 
ence to a system of nudeanfissuaskm 
that evolved in the years after Worid 
War II, but with reference to all (he

When Things Were Distinctly Better 


N EW YORK — Back m the 
’60s, I knew an itinerant actor 


By Richard Cohen 


named George. Once, at a party, be 
stripped down to his shorts and 
engaged in a poEtical argument — 
proving, he said, that it was no 
longer possible to be considered lu- 
dicrous. He also said that he fre- 
quently went into office buddings, 
ate in the employees’ ca/etena. 
sometimes taking a desk and using 
the phone. Which part of that story 
strikes the cont em po ra ry reader as 
inconceivable? 

It is tbe last part, the part about 
jus: walking into a strange building 
without bang stopped by security. 
Because of crane, no one can walk 
into most buildings in New York or 
any American dty without a pass. 

Because of crime, you need, in 
many American cities, either a to- 
ken or exact change to get on a bus. 

Because of crime, people Eve in 
guarded, fenced communities or be- 
hind barred windows. Many booses 
have security systems, ana so do 
most cars. .And in too many homes, 
a handgun near the bed b essential 
for a good night's sleep. 

Nevertheless, some liberals and 
some commentators seem to think 
it is no big problem. With com- 
mendable accuracy, they cite statis- 
tics to suggest that the" public and 
its elected representatives are in 
an unjustified panic about crime. 
Those who share this view hare the 
□umbers on their side ( certain num- 
bers. anyway /. but they are confus- 
ing better with best. Things may be 
better than they used lobe; they are 
not as good as they once were" 

In fact, what are now common 
security precautions — expensive, 
onerous and inconvenient — may 
account for some of the decline in 
the crime rate. In Washington's 
tony Georgetown neighborhood, for 


instance, some homeowners have 
hired private security guards. 

The fear of crime has severely 
drcumscribed our lives — deter- 
mining where we Eve and bow we 
Eve — and the reminders of it are 
everywhere, not just on the local 
television news. In that sense, H 
may not matter much that violent 
crime has dropped since the 1980s. 
What matters more is that it is up 
since 1973, and in some categories 

— gun violence involving young 
people — it is up dramatically. 
Since 1979, for instance, the homi- 
cide rate among young black males 
aged 15 to 19 has quadrupled. 

In Los Angeles the phrase du 
jour i$ “post-traumatic distress syn- 
drome" — a kind of psychic after- 
shock brought on by the earth- 
quake. Something similar is pro- 
bably happening when it comes la 
crime. The rates for most violent 
crimes are down, but the average 
American does not think so — it 
just doesn’t fed that way. 

ft is tins feeling, expressed in poll- 
ing data, that is fueling the effort by 
Co ng ress and the Chnton adminis- 
tration to toughen penalties, add 
cops to the streets and. it seems, 
extend tbe death penalty to cover 
everything short cs spitting on the 
sidewalk- Tbe politicians are giving 
expression to what the voters are 
feeling. They ait afraid and angry. 

Congressional liberals and oth- 
ers, though, keep pointing at the 
numbers and insisting that every- 
one else is overreacting. When it 
comes to specific recommendations 

— draconian “three strikes and 
you’re out" proposals, for instance 

— they have a point. What they 
seem not to understand is that the 


base year for measuring crime is not 
some date in the 1980s but a non- 
specific year when, in oar memo- 
ries, back doors were open daring 
the day and the setting of the sun in 
many cities <fid not have tbe effect 
of a neutron bomb. The bufldings 
remain, but the people arc gone. 

Liberals who say that “three 
strikes and you’re out” is mindless 
and cruel are right. They are right, 
too, about mandatory minwtmm 
sentencing laws, which treat all 
criminals without reference to their 
differences — and all judges as if 
they were dopes. But they miss the 
point if they think that the dip in 
crime statistics ought to be reflect- 
ed almost immediately nr a more 
sanguine public attitude toward 
crime and crimmals. They would do 
far better to acknowledge the pro- 
blem and limit their attack to the 
more simplistic of tbe solutions. 

Ronald Reagan was adept at 
summoning the nostalgic past to 
advance his poEtical program. But 
even stripped of nostalgia, rt is pos- 
able to remember a time when 
buildings were open to the public 
and bus drivers mute change 

Recently, for instance, a hospital 
trade publication reported that it 
had difficulty finding a free-lance 
photographer brave enough to go 
into a certain New YorkGtynei$- 
borhood. Far Rockaway. Not long 
ago Far Rockaway was a bucolic 
seaside community where fear of 
crime was about the same as fear of 


nuclear war. I grew up there. We 
kept our doors locked, out 


loot with 

any sense of urgency. 

For many of us, that time is our 
point of reference It is not a statis- 
tic, but a date or an era — not when 
things were marly less worse, but 
when they were distinctly better. 
The Washington Past. 


mcnL To the extent that they can ! 
coordinated internationally, to that, 
extent are they made more effective. 

It is not enough to go on prating 
about the virtues of free markets or 


ciaety right to showcase both, i 
Onion did just tha* 

Some of las greatest failures have 
come when, b with gay men and lesfai- 
ans in the militaiy or an end to the 
HV exduaon for imntigrams, be has 
been challenged to be an unrecon- 
structed liberal on social issues. Now 
reconstructed, be came down heavily 
an c rim e and. welfare reform in ins 
first State of the Union. 

He is too smart to think that other 
issue is as smqde as people would Eke 
or as he made them sound. For a start, 
you can’t rcftani welfare unless you 
reform drild care^And mandating sen- 
teoccs without; ad dr essi ng the root 
causes of crime just guarantees ^that 
America's tamest growth industry wfll 
be tl* manufacture of felons. 

But violent crime and welfare de- 
pendency have become problems so 
pressing that the time is right not 
only for a president to attack both, 
but for a Democratic president to do 
so, oadpting RepubEcanx. 

- And without reprisals from the usu- 
al suspects. liberals will never be 
by “two years and out” for 
or “three strikes and yotfre 
out" foe felons, but the triwig is bad 
for bromides about tbe cydecf pover- 
ty, even if they happen to be tnm. 

Mr. Gmton’s first State of the 
Union was a little like the story etthe 
blind men and the elephant, in which

I employ it today in response to a 
line in an essay by my colleague An-

and women named to high government 
office are often savagely abused.* - 

Mr. Lewis is a cherished friend but 
is hopelessly compassionate when it 
comes to liberal lawyers appointed to 
high office. One man’s “savage abuse” 
and ‘'partisan zealotry” — hyperbole, 
when applied to principled conserva- 
tive resistance to the attorneys 
Lani Guilder and Robert Fiske — ■ is 
another man’s “dose scrutiny and 
fair crindsm.” •

chastised by Mr. Inman for during .

A generation ago, in my Nixon 
years, I saw how robust media criti- 
cism could be inhibited by suppress- 
ing fire- Patrick Buchanan wrote a 
speech for Spiro A^new to deliver in 
Dcs Moines blasting the undented 
elite; that wasTfhe end. of “instant 
analysis” and the start o? much of the 
media’s antsy self-consciousness 
about the power of the press. - 

Not every journalist joins in the 
general self-bashing. The other night 
on televirion, Ted Koppel character- 
ized Oliver North,' the candidate for. a 
Virginia senatorial nonunatioii. as “an 
accom plishe d liar' and a shameless 
self-promoter.” 

Whoa the media critic of the Los

tnt-tuited that this “was a little 
oyer the line," ABCs Mr. Koppcd held 
bis ground: after all, a jury convicted 
Mr. North of lying before the verdict 
was set aside. (Mr. North' lamped up 
the media exposure and did not with- 
draw his candidacy.) .

It Was a Good Year on Film , , 
Beginning With p Much Ado 9 


By Richard Reeves 


L OS ANGELES — For the record, 
/ 1 thought “Schindler’s Ust" was a 
better movie than “The Piano.” If you 
are into things Irish. I thought “The 
Snapper” was closer to truth than “In 
the Name of the Father ." 

Whether or not the voters of the 
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and 
Sciences agree with me, or with you, 
these movies arc serious works of serious 
purpose. Perhaps some thing is going on 
that I don't know about. 

Like most everyone in my business. 1

movies and on television — particular- 
ly the laner. I am no great student of 
these things, but I sure have seen a lot 


There is a price to be paid, of course, 
to get to do work of a certain seriousness 
— or just to do the kind of work you 
want to do — in a corporate cul ture as 
intensely commercial as the movie busi- 
ness. If you want to do a quirky black- 
and-white film about the Holocaust, it 
helps a lot to be Steven Spielberg, maker 
of billions in films about extraterrestri- 
als and dinosaurs. 

The same is true of Martin Scorsese, 
who has made a lot of people a lot of 
money with films, good films, where 
blood flows in rivers. It is hard to i 


of good movies lately. 
In additic 


hearings, and the press scrutiny lead- 
ing up to them, test the mettle of 
nominees much as a campaign shows 
us how candidates react under fire. 
Sex lives should be “over the line,” but 
business records, previous official ser- 
vice, speeches ana writings should be 
rifted and examined closely. That 
keeps some sensitive souls out of 

E olrtics, but the rough-and-tumble 
eeps politics clean. 

And rigorous confirmations enable 
Congress and die press to get answers 
not otherwise available. Back-scratch- 
ingnetworks are illuminated. 

The Pentagon lawyer Jamie Gore- 
lick was chosen by Hillary Clinton’s 
law partner Webster Hubbell (who 


pompously signs his internal memos 
*‘Asst. Auy. General and Chief Oper- 
ating Officer”) to replace Philip Hey- 
mann as deputy attorney general and 
improve the “personal chemistry” 
atop the Justice Department. 

Ms. Gorelick should be asked about 
her representation of Clark Clifford 
and Robert Altman in their effort 
to get First American Bank to pay 
their legal fees owed to the law firm of 
Robert Fiske. 

Robert Fiske is the man Janet Reno 
was forced by Mr. Hubbell and the 
White House counsel, Bernard Nuss- 
baum, to choose as “special” (non- 
independent; counsel in the 
Whitewater and Vincent Foster in- 


vestigations. Why choose the liberal 
Mr. Fiske, known to be anathema 
to conservatives? 

Because Mr. Heymaco wanted 
someone else — Donald Avre — who 
insisted that no lawyer-client priv- 
ilege be taken by Mr.’Nussbaum and 
the Clintons. 

But the malleable Mr. Fiske made 
no such demands — which is why 
the General Services Administration 
has just signed a three-year lease for 
Mr. Fiske’s headquarters in Little 
Rock, Arkansas. 

Call this savage abuse? Ideological 
zealotry? Spare us the hair shirts; we 
are doing our job.

Hard-Learned Lessons From One Who Has Been in the Cross Hairs 


W ASHINGTON — The dotation of my. friend 
Bobby lnm»n to whhdjawhjsnommatkm to 
be secretary of defense and now the naming of 
another friend* Bin Perry, for the samejob prompt 
some personal observations on thertonnnatiou and 
confirmation process. . 

It is a process 1 know well from three very 
diffe rent n o mi nations.- Iinow frara personal expe- 
rience the joy of. quick and unanimous confirma- 
tion. the pain of withdrawal and the satisfaction, of 
strong, bipartisan confirmation after a long, and 
contentious struggle. I come away from it all con- 
Yinced that the Senate most be free to conducf the 
most searching inquiry as part of confirmation. No 
area erf personal or professorial Hfe of those nomi- 
nated to the most senior positions m government 
should be beyond scrutiny. 

If this is true for the Senate, then it will also be 
true for journalists. But I also befieve that Homan 
and journalists have an obligation to conduct . their 
inquiries responsibly, open-nnnde^y and with to-:. 
gard for fairness, accnracy and the dignity of all 
concerned. Special care is warranted ot matters 
relating to a nominee's character and integrity. 


By Robert M. Gates 

• Of the hundr eds of dedicated and skilled senior 
govmuneirt officials I have known working for six 
presidents of both parties, I have never known one 
who was not deeply affected by apuhlic attack on 
his or her character or integrity. 

No one forgets such attacks. Some swallow hand 
at the' pride of public service and gp on without 
bitterness. Some go forward burdened by rancor 
and cynicism. Ana some amply withdraw. 

But no one who has not been “in the cross hairs” 
can knowihe pain caused even the toughest nomi- 
nee by an off-handed comment by a senator or an 
allegation impugning one’s character. A sense of 
honor is not a quaint anachronism; it is strong in 
most of those willing to do public sendee. 

While it is true that personal attacks on would-be 
officiaZs areas old as the republic, it is also true that 
oulyin recent years have those attacks been flashed 
instantly to -me entire country and even to the 
worid. It is only fairiy recently that those attacks 
have entne not from easily recognizable partisan 
publications or sources but from purportedly ob- 


jective observers — and thus cany more weight. 
Such attacks, even if baseless, remain part erf the 
nominee’s public record forever. 

Because dose scrutiny is critical to public trust, I 
recommend no change to the formal process of 
nomination and confirmation. Nor should press 
scrutiny of nominees be eased. 

But I would urge the Senate and the media to 
reflect on their parts in it. I would encourage 
members of Congress to be more restrained m 
offering off-the-cuff, and often poorly informed, 
comments about a nominee. In the interest of fair 
play and objectivity, journalists should work harder 
to get the foil story when offered a juicy tidbit, 
especially when tendered by a source who does not 
want to be n»«rw»rf or by someone with an obvious 
agenda or vendetta. 

And the White House and Senate should estab- 
lish new ground rules relaxing the long-required 
public of nominees between the announce- 
ment of an appointment and Senate hearings to 
allow a nominee the right of self-defense — espe- 
cially on issues of character or past actions. 

For prospective nominees, when you accept nond- 


ior position, 

m a linn wiQ be fainy painless and mostly unnoticed. 
Bui prepare yourself and your family for the worst. If 
you are in the private sector, prepare for intense 
examination of your professional hfe and your in- 
come. and be prepared to have the activities of yoar 
children and other relatives bared, personal and 
marital problems aired, and friends as weB as busi- 
ness or professional associates investigated. 

If you are in government, expea to cany baggagf 
from one administration to the next You ami 
properly bear the cumulative weight of all your 
actions and decisions over the years. 

A final paint The nomination and confirmation 
process for just about everyone — even those who 
skate through — is a lot like a root canal Bui if you 
are successful and most nominees are, the challenge 
?md honor of public service and the satisfaction of 
tackling the nation's problems, of helping to make 
history, make it all worthwhile. If the president calls.

addition to those above. 1 have 
seen “The Age of Innocence,” “Fare- 
weD My Concubine” (from China) and 
“The Accompanist” (from France). 
Plus “Beethoven’s 2nd.” a very funny 
movie that satisfied both our 9-year- 
old and her father. Thinking back, I 
realize that there were a suing of good 
movies through 1993. “Much Ado 
About Nothing” comes to mind — it 
had a great script. 

The existence of those films and the 
popularity of most of them are no small 
accomplishments in a medium where 
somebody has to put together at least S10 
million even to ihink about turning on the 
lights. AH this is happening at a time 
when, if an American wants to see more 
than a couple of pieces of good theater, be 
needs a passport and ticket to London. 

And, biting the hand that feeds me, 
this is also a time when book best-seller 
lists are dominated by the fantasies of 
Howard Stem and the guy who wrote 
“The Bridges of Madison County.” 

There may be a logical explanation 
for the current wave of good films — an 
international explanation, since so many 
of the ones I liked were foreign — and 
that is the fact that so many talented 
young people are being drawn to film 
rather than to the stage, television, jour- 
nalism or die loneliness of book writing. 

In Hollywood, there is a joke about 
God coming to Mother Teresa and of- 
fering her anything on earth as reward 
for her good works. Money, pleasure, 
youth — she turns it all down. Finally 
God says there must be something, and 
she says, “WeD. maybe I could direct.” 

Being a director (or even a lowly actor 
or lowuer screenwriter) seems to be the 
ambition of about half of young Ameri- 
ca, beginning with my three sons. Those 
kids are the recent equivalents of people 
who once wanted to be playwrights like 
Kaufman and Hart or star reporters like 
Woodward and Bernstein. 

This year’s movies showcase enor- 
mous talent, and you get the sense that 
there is more where that came from. 


ine the expression on a studio chiefs 
face when Mr. Scorsese said he wanted 
to do Edith Wharton; in fad it is hard 
to imag ine that any executive knew what 
Edith Wharton has done lately. 

That, though, is the way it works in 
any “creative^business. The reward for 
pairing a successful movie is the chance 
to do another. Them, if you stay lucky, 
one day you get a chance to do what you 
want to do — no matter that everyone 
else rhintrg you’re crazy. 

“Stick with what works” is usually the 
motto of bonom-liners who have no 
idea what works. 

At any rate, the business of making 
popular films seems to roe to have had a 
very creative year, one to be proud of, 
hopefully one that will be repeated again 
and again with new names and dreams. 

Let’s face it, print peers, this is not only 
what young people want to do, it is a way 
they want to teadi and learn. “Schindler’s 
List” has the reach and impact that books 
once had — the kind of influence William 
Shirer’s “Rise and Fall of the Third 
Reich” had on people like me.

Show the Children 

S HOULD WE lake our youngsters to 
see “Schindler’s List"? Should we 
expose them to the excremental assault 
ou the dignity of men. women and chil- 
dren during the honor of the Holocaust? 
Or will we inadvertently lay a heavy 
stone of despair upon their hearts? 

It is important that they know what 
happened. It is perilous to raise children 
in ignorance of the past 
The question is not whether to know or 
to remember but what to remember and 
how lo serve the honor of that memory so 
that it strengthens our morale and moral- 
ity. Oskar Schindler, the Roman Catholic 
rescuer, represents that small but pre- 
cious number of human beings who 
risked (heir fortunes and lives to rescue 
people not of their faith. In every country 
that the Nazi predators invaded, there 
were ordinary men and women who re- 
fused to succumb to the ugly rationaliza- 
tion that there is no alternative to passive 
complicity with totalitarian killers. 

Our children must know it alL

Why should the West offer a service 
it cannot provide? 

2) Is it reasonable to add to the 
task erf NATO, which today is less

not want to serve in their own ar-

Hie New Prohibition 

Regarding “All’s Fair in the Wa- 
rm Crime" (Opinion, Jan. 29) by 
A. M. Rosenthal 

The United States got along 
quite well for its first 150 years 
with legalized drugs, in c l uding co- 
caine and opium derivatives. Pro- 
hibition of alcohol, that first great 
mistake of those busybodies who 
say “there ought to be a law,” not 
only did not work according to its 
intent, it made the Mafia an en- 
trenched economic power in the 
United States and seriously eroded 
respect for the law. (Alcohol con- 
sumption actually rose during Pro- 
hibition and fell dramatically upon 
repeal.) The current Prctebinon, 
unfortunately, takes up where the 
last one left off, again making bat- 
tlefields of our does. 

If the esctraordinaiy profit incen- 
tive artificially created by criminal- 
ization did not exist, would drug 
dealing be the temptation it now is 
for onderprivilegai youth? How 
much of today's violent crime 
stems from that windfall profit, or 
from the inability to pay artificially 
inflated prices? Justice Depart- 
ment stumes have estimated that a 
staggering 50 percent of all proper- 
ty crimes are drug-related. 

I, far one, otgect to my tax doOais

High Rollers, 
High Stakes: 
The Casinos 
Of Mayfair 

Getting a 'Drop’ 
On the Gaming 




' ■a'** 


Cluhs of London 




By David Spanier 


L ONDON — You don’t need to be a 
miQiooaire for a night out at the 
tables in London. In good dines and 
in bad, the British love to gamble. 
You can play for the price of a taxi ride or you 
can stake tens of thousands of pounds. Either 
way, the casinos doited around the raffish 
little strip of Mayfair set between between 
Piccadilly and Park Lane are on a rolL 
The “drop” or total money gambled in the 
capital’s 21 casinos rose to a record total last 
year, close to £1.5 billion ($L25 billion). 

Londoners themselves, squeezed by reces- 
sion and stung by new taxes, are not the 
main players. The new high rollers are punt- 
ers from the Far East. A group of Malaysians 
recently dropped several million at the Ritz 
Cub on Piccadilly, which turned in a pretax 
profit of £20 milli on last year. 

According to another high-rolling casino, 
Crockfonfs on Curzon Street, its top 10 play- 
ers in the past three years accounted for more 
than half its total profit. When one high roller 
flies home to lick bis wounds, another is likely 
to drop in. Or so the management hopes. 

Part of the charm of casinos in London is 
that every establishment reflects, in its style, 
its staff, its tone, the finely graded nuances 
of the British class system. Which is to say 
there is gaming to suit all social levels. 

A player may dine in candlelighted splen- 
dor under the chandeliers of Les Ambassa- 
deuis, formerly Lord Rothschild’s crrnaie 
mansion at the end of Park Lane. Or a 
gambler can sneak off to Soho, where amid 
the sleaze and the strip joints he can roll dice 
with the locals at Chester's, newly decorated 
in gumlinging Wild West style. Or he can 
choose a comfortable upper-middle ambi- 
ence at Maxim's in Kensington, which 
among other attractions has a private dining 
room with a minstrels' gallery. 

Yet you could live in London for months 
on end and never be aware that this is the 
capital city of European gambling. British 
casinos are not allowed to advertise their 
wares. The whole operation is discreetly hid- 
den from view. The official regulation of 
casino gambling is like Victorian society’s 
altitude to sex: It may be necessary to allow 
gambling, for those who cannot resist this 
(regrettable) urge. But, really, it should not 
be seen in public. 

Control of gaming has always been marked 
by a Puritan streak, going right bade to the 
days of Henry VIII. One indulgence, however, 
is permitted under modem British law. 
Though the kind of gilded hospitality that Las 
Vegas and Atlantic City casinos shower on 
favored clients is prohibited, the code of prao- 


Ronaa Canto/ EMT 


tier does aDow gamblers to pause for dinner. 
And the dining is often spectacular. The chefs 
at the top London casinos vie with each other 
in presenting as elaborate a cuisine as any 
restaurant in town, often with Arabic. Chi- 
nese, Indian and Thai menus. 

It may be some consolation to a Japanese 
f inan cier or Chinese taipan who has dropped 
a couple of milli on for the night that they can 
eat, drink and be merry at the houses ex- 
pense. Even so, they need to drink up pretty 
fast: Under British regulations the bars shut 
at 1 1 P. M. No drinks at the gaming table, 
either. This is absolutely taboo, as an “in- 
ducement” to gamble. 

The ambivalence of the British approach 
to gambling means that a visitor in town for 
a couple of nights who might want to visit a 
casino cannot just walk in off the street and 
play, American-style. Casinos are licensed as 
“clubs” and the players are therefore “mem- 
bers.” Before making a Gist visit, a player 
must sign on, 4S hours ahead of time, signal- 
ing his or her intention to gamble. The idea is 
to ensure that would-be punters are of a calm 
and balanced frame of mind and to prevent 


anyone dropping in to try their luck at rou- 
lette or blackjack just on impulse (perish the 
thought). 

The club subscription in most cases is 
nominal. The 48-hour rule, more than any 
other, irks the casino industry, which de- 
pends for the bulk of its profit on overseas 
visitors, who may be in London for a short 
stay. The casinos maintain that foreign play- 
ers, at least, should be exempt from the rule. 
But visitors are allowed into casinos if they 
are guests of a member. Hours of opening: 2 
P. M. to 4 A. M., 365 days a year. 

The latest casino to open is Aspin ail's on 
Curzon Street As befits Britain's most cele- 
brated gambler. John Aspinali offers the 
highest maximum in town, £2,000 on a num- 
ber at roulette, worth £70,000 if it hits. A 
player's maximum win or loss in such a 
session could easily ran to £4 million to £6 
million. At those stakes, which do not hap- 
pen every day, who cares about a drink after 
11 P.M.? 


David Spanier is a British journalist who 
often writes about gambling.

Tod os a la Cared 


Directed by Luis G. BerUinga. 
Spain. 

Berlanga has taken the pulse of 
Spanish satire during a long ca- 
reer, dating from the classic 
"Bienvenido Mister Marshall” 
of the 1950s. Now. in his first 
film in six years, he presents a 
scorching and hilarious critique 
of Spain's governing Socialists, 
the opposition conservatives, the 
clergy, haute-cuisine Spanish 
Basque chefs and even the CIA. 
As former political prisoners un- 
der Franco, the Socialists plan 
an overnight reunion in a jail 
\cdrcel). But the organizers cyni- 
cally aim to pocket most of the 
charitable donations for the 
event, while a distraught busi- 
nessman shows up hoping to 
meet a government minister and 
get paid S570.000 the state owes 
him for installing toilets in pub- 
lic buildings. Don't worry, he is 
told, the government owes ev- 
eryone money. The problem for 
viewers not immersed in con- 
temporary Spain is the likeli- 


hood of missing some of the best 
jokes. The camera deftly moves 
from vignette to vignette, almost 
like little waves at sea, carrying 
the stray forward to the next 
laugh. (At Goodman, IHT)

Dream. Ketko. his girlfriend, 
otherwise unoccupied, maybe 
wants to go to Brazfl. Yum. his 
other girlfriend, sort or up in

Maybe. For a film in which this 
is ail that happens, the power is 
surprising. This is because Ya- 
maguchi, making his first pic- 
ture, is really mapping the emo- 
tional desert in which the young 
unwittingly dwell. They* play 
around, try things out, ana do 
not even consider committing 
themselves to anything or any- 
one — do not, indeed, even 


know that this is occasionally 
possible. Yamagucbi Teels 
strongly about all this waste. He 
knows it weU, as a refugee from 
the empty terrain of TV adver- 
tising, and he quit his job to say 
ii in this 16mm, black-and- 
white film. He also knows his 
Jarmusch — knows his Anton- 
ioni, too — but most important, 
he knows himself.

Whenever Hollywood trots out 
its favorite premise about the 
beautiful blind woman and the 
deadly stalker, the audience dis- 
covers something new. So 
"Blink.” a variation on this dis- 
creetly sadistic formula, brings 
its share of little revelations: 
That even a mystery story can 
be overpowered by high-tech 
special effects. That if a stalker 
wants to be scary he'd better 
show a little style. And that 
beautiful blind women are a lot 


tougher than they used to be. 
" Blink” finds something entic- 
ingly spooky in Emma Brody, 
who is first seen as the milky- 
eyed fiddler with an Irish rock 
band, played by Madeleine 
Stowe. But* this ium isn’t con- 
tent to explore Emma’s colorful 
character. It insists on having a 
gimmick, too. “Blink” focuses 
on Emma's uncertain vision. 
When Emma receives corneal 
transplants after 20 years or 
blindness, her eyesight comes 
back in a peculiar way. She can 
see someone without registering 
the image until hours later, a 
phenomenon that is central to 
the uneven screenplay. So 
**B!ink’' has Emma being 
stalked by phantom villains 
who may or may not be any- 
where near her. That device 
provides a good way of scaring 
viewers out of their seats. But 
the film gets so sidetracked by 
its computer tricks that it ne- 
glects to fill in seme very basic 
elements of its suspense plot.

Japan’s Harbinger of Spring 




-ii' 


By Carol Lutfy 


T OKYO — The cherry blossom may 
be idealized for its delicacy and 
fleeting beauty, but it is the intrep- 
id plum blossom, acting as nature’s 
foot soldier, that ushers in Japan’s spring 
season every year. Braving February snow 
and winds, the hearty blossoms, known as 
ume, coax the nation out from under foot 
warmers and into parks and gardens. They 
also bring a season of festivities. 

Ume viewing is, at its best, a time of 
enthusiastic eating. From beneath a dusting 
of snow, a plum subculture emerges, and one 
of Japan's most popular foods is devoured 
with abandon. Made from unripe plums har- 
vested the previous June, the tart umeboshi, 
or sailed plum, is available in more than 20 
varieties. There are also plum crackers, plum 
tea, plum jam. plum vinegar, plum wine and 
even plum noodles. At public plum groves 
and private plum gardens throughout the 
Tokyo metropolitan area, crowds hover 
around food stalls, hands extended to grab a 
sample of the year’s wackiest offerings. 

Japanese plum trees are members of the 
Western apricot family. In their rivalry with 
the more celebrated cherry blossom, they 
remain a distant — perhaps unjustified - — 
second, buz have a few undisputed strengths. 
First and foremost, the trees are painstaking 
works of art, with slim trunks ana intricately 
gnarled branches that attest to yean of al- 
most constant pruning. Then, too, their vel- 
vety blossoms — in red, blue, pink, yellow 
and white — are fragrant and long-lasting, 
compared with scentless, short-lived cherry 
blossoms, in white and pink only. 

That said, fans of ume viewing need to be 
as tough in the face of the cold as the 
blossoms they set out to appreciate. Hanegi 
Park, in the city's residential Setagaya Ward, 
initiates Tokyo’s plum-blossom season with 
a blustery festival that begins on Feb. 6. 
Visitors approaching the park are greeted by 
the mournful song of a roasted-potato ven- 


hnlding their childr en's hands, cross paths 
with snuggling couples. The rows of trees 
seem to be topped with tufts of cotton candy. 

Across town, the plum festival at Yushima 

Shrine in SMtamachi, Tokyo's old quarter, 
bubbles over with traditional eotertamggflt 
and down-home hospitality. Upon entering 
the shrine grounds, visitors are greeted with 
cups of steaming green tea, served op by 
neighborhood volunteers. 

Yushi ma is one of Tokyo's oldest shrines, 
dating from the mid-14ib century. It holds 
an annual celebration devoted to the plum 


passion: hand-pruned bonsai plum treat, 
hand-picked salted plans and home-made 
phim jams are for sale everywhere^ 

The plum groves, stretching as far as the 
eve can see, leap straight out of an Impres- 
sionist painting —confident brash strokes m 
white, pink, yellow and gray, daubed across 
entire fafUsides. During the official ameresa- 
val, Feb. 26 to March 27, youll run into 
musidans and other merrymakers. ’ 

Northeast of Tokyo. Kairakuen m Mho 
City is the country's preeminent place for 
plum viewing. Designated a® csne of the 
three most celebrated gardens in- Japan, it is 
cherished not only for its elegant layout and 


blossom from Feb. IS through March 15. 
(The festival coincides with Japan’s college 
entrance-exam season, so you are bound to 
notice that racks of ema, votive plaques, 
from students praying for success, vastly 
outnumber the plum trees.) In fact, the 450

dor. Operating out of a small white pickup 
truck, from which he codes and sells piping- 
hot sweet potatoes, he is a soulful reminder 
that winter has not yet turned to spring. 

Hanegi Park offers family-style fun be- 
neath a canopy of about 650 plum trees. The 
centerpiece of the festival is a bonsai plum- 
tree exhibition. Among the perennial favor- 
ites is a variety that is difficult to breed with 
pink, yellow and blue blossoms all on the 
same tree. There are also specimens that 
have been trained to grow at a 60-degree 
angle — a feat that probably has more ad- 
venturous than true aesthetic value. 

Beyond the exhibition, there is food, food 
and more food: hot baked potatoes, oozing 
with butter grilled and blackened com on 
the cob; bubbling oden stew; teaming udon 
noodles — and hot sake to wash it all down. 

In the upper-middle-class neighborhood of 
Umegaoka (roughly translated as Hills of 
Plum Blossoms), the festival is distinguished 
by its laid-back, no-frills atmosphere. Parents 


or so plum trees cat the grounds are not the 
main attraction. It is the carefully organized 
entertainment that makes Yushima the most 
colorful ume festival in town. 

Visitors are likely to chance upon a profes- 
sional paper cutler who produces likenesses 
of a dragon, an ox-drawn cart, and Akebono, 
the Hawaiian-born sumo wrestler, in seconds. 
There is also an annual auction of bananas. 
Fating the b ananas is supposed to help high 
school students pass their college entrance 
exams, and the competition among parents to 
buy thfm is cotmcaL On the other side of the 
shone grounds, women in urne-partemed ki- 
monos demonstrate the tea ceremony, and 
food stall after food stall offers free samples of 
plum crackers, plum tea and plum wine. 

If pondering natural beauty is your plea- 
sure. Yoshino Baigo, a village overflowing 
with 25,000 trees, is the place to go. Just an 
hour or so outside Tokyo, Yoshino is situat- 
ed on the banks of the Tama River against a 
dramatic backdrop of jagged-edged moun- 
tains. Situated in the greater dty of Ome 
(Blue Plum), the town is an advertisement 
for Japan’s scenic beauty. 

Yoshino has been known for centuries as a 
kind of plum paradise for its wide variety of 
plum products. Though considerably scaled 
down today, that tradition lives on through 
the efforts of part-time plum growers. 

The walk through Yoshino village is as 
captivating as the enormous public plum 
groves it shelters. You wiQ find the ubiqui- 
tous food stalls, setting everything from 
plum vinegar to plum toilet paper. But soon, 
trafficked streets lead into narrow paths that

Mito, who, unlike other feudal lords of his 
day, sought to share ins passion for plum 
blossoms. In the mid- 1880s he buflt Kaira- 
Jcuen and opened its door to the public. 
During peak blossoming season, he invited 
village eiders to write poetry in his villa. 

These days, peak season brings to Kaira- ' 
kuen a full-blown festival from Feb. 20 to 
Match 22. As at other ume festivals, there 
are food stalls galore; there are also open-air 
tea ceremonies, outdoor koto (Japanese 
harp) performances and miniature plum ■ 
trees on exhibit and for sale. While the 
festival is terrific, it is also crowded, attract- 
ing as many as 10,000 tourists a day.

Ins and Outs of Tokyo and Kyoto 


By David M. Kahn 


T OKYO — Anyone who is about to 
make a first trip to Tokyo. Kyoto 
or both faces a quandary when it 
comes to choosing good guide- 
books from the dozens available. Trial and 
error has taught me that the sensibility of the 
authors is far more important than the pub- 
lisher’s brand name. 

The best guides to Tokyo and Kyoto are 


excellent guidebooks: Suzntko Eobutsu’s “Old 
Tokyo: Walks in the Gtyof the Shogun” and 


written by people who have spent consider- 
able time in Japan or who are Japanese. Their 
books evoke the rich atmosphere of Japanese 
culture rather than merely describe it and the 
points of interest they chose to discuss are 
more than stops on the itinerary. 


If you want a single practical guide that 
will get you around Tokyo and Kyoto, the 


best volume is the revised edition of June 
Kinoshita and Nicholas P&ievsky’s “Gateway 
to Japan,” published in 1992L It covers the 
country, but includes detailed sections on 
Tokyo and Kyoto. The Tokyo portion was 
issued separately in 1995 under the title 
“Gateway to Tokyo." 

Almost one-quarter of “Gateway to Japan” 
is devoted to an introduction to Japanese 
history and culture. The information cm festi- 
vals. crafts, cuisine, and other subjects is more 
thorough and more thoughtfully presented 
than in comparable general guides to Japan. 

“Gateway to Japan" divides Tokyo into 
four major quadrants and suggests neighbor- 
hoods and sites to visit in each zone. Kyoto is 
similarly covered in fire sections. The authors 
hit the highlights and provide extensive lis ting s 
of well-chosen lodgings and restaurants. 

Tokyo is basically big. modem, and brassy. 
Bui it also has another, warmer, and more 
traditional side. For travelers interested in ex- 
ploring tbe dry's rich heritage there are two 


Tokyo: Walks in the Gty of the Shogun” and 
Tae Moriyama’s “Tokyo Adventures: 
Glimpses of the Gty in Bygone Eras.” 

Both are organized around walking touts 
of distinctive Tokyo neighborhoods, and in- 
clude discussions of museums, temples and 
other attractions as well as shopping and 
dinin g recommendations. 

Of the two, “Okl Tokyo: Walks in the Gty 
of the Shogun” is the more charming. Shita- 
machi. the focus of tbe book, is a collection of 
older Tokyo neighborhoods that more or less 
flank the Sumida River. In the city’s premo- 
dera period, merchants, craftsmen, geisha. 
Kabuki actors and other commoners filled 
Shitamachfs leaning streets. In contrast, the 
hffly areas in the city’s western region were 
the preserve of the sbognn, the great lords, or 
daimyo, and their vassals. 

The book indudes tours of 11 neighbor- 
hoods. Among my favorites is Yanaka, a 
beautiful area Oiled with small wooden tem- 
ples and houses that have somehow escaped 
earthquakes, bombings and redevelopment 
Tbe book identifies quaint shops to visit 
along the way, such as Isetatsu, where pat- 
terned paper goods are sold. 

The author’s dining recommendations have 
particularly endeared her book to me. In each 
tour she identifies marvelous restaurants. Most 
have been doing business for generations and 
they all specialize in particular areas of Japa- 
nese arisne. The book trils you wbal to older 
and speOsout the appropriate Japanese words 
phonetically. Her recommendations include 
Ponta in Ueoo and Daikokuya in Asakusa. 
Ponta. housed in a new building with chic, 
t ra ditio n al detailing, specializes in tonkatsu. a 
tender-deep-fried pork cutlet. At Daikokuya, a 
neighborhood restaurant, connoisseurs order 
tendon, a seafood uanpura in a thick saivr 
served over rice. 


Tokyo Adventures: Ohntpses of tbe Gty 
in Bygone Eras,’ published in 1993, explores 
most of the same Shitamachi neighborhoods 
covered by the Enbutsu boot But Tokyo 
Adventures’ devotes equal space to walking 
tours in other sections of Tokyo like the 
fashionable Aoyama, with its designer both 
tiqnes. 

A major attraction in Aoyama is the Nezu 
Art Museum. As tbeboak notes, the museum's 
collections of Japanese screens and tea cere- 
mony utensils are wonderful But an even 
greater feature is iu spacious traditional gar- 
den that spreads down the ML The narrow 
paths take visitors past teahouses, stone lan- 
terns and over small wooden bridges. 


T HERE are many other spedahred 
guidebooks to Tokyo, including 
Kick Kennedy's “Good Tokyo Res- 
taurants.” reissued in a third edition 


-•« taurants." reissued in a third edition 
in 1992; Thomas and Ellen Flannigan’s "To- 
kyo Museums: A Complete Guide," published 
in 1993, and Steven L Clemens’s Tokyo Fink 
Guide,” also published in 1993. 

Whichever you choose, always check for 
one thing: the presence of detailed mops that 
can get you to where you are going. Tokyo’s 


address system can only be described as cha- 
otic. Mailmen know where things are; but no' 
one else does. One friend told me of stopp ing 
in at a neighborhood police station to find 


out where a particular store might be. The 
policeman didn't have a dins and called the 
shop, only to discover it was two doors away. 
The best guidebooks to Tokyo take account 
of this situation by including finely Spiled 
maps.

Historical Society and a frequent visitor to 
Japan, wrote this for The New York Tunes.

ninaenburg disaster was the coup de grace, 
for public and government confidence in 
atrsmp safety. 

Since tlwn, airships in the form of Wimp®

sun^ance,, off-shore rig m»imqppTie» and 
as TV camera platforms' to cover sports 
events. And, of course, as flying bflflxwnls. 


they are familiar sights above cities like San 
Francisco, Tokyo and Sydney. * 

But today, airships are begmsatg to make 
a comeback as passenger vehicles — for 
regular shuttle services, and luxury sky 
Qtnises. Traveling at weeds of 30 to 60 mOes 
^50 .to TOO kflometers) an boor just BOO feet 
(240 meters) above ground, airships offer 
spectsusular. views, and a quiet, SpadOUS 
environment — you can walk around, even 
open the windows. Modern airships are safe, 
comfortable, cheap to operate ana environ- 
ment-friendly. (Airships consume about 
eightgafloos of fad an hour and can operate 
fora week an the fuel that a 747 uses rating 
from the gate to the runway,) 

“We’re expiating the possibility of sky 
craves over parts rf tie world that are best 
seen from a ship — rain forests in Brazil and 
Peru,. Hawaii, chateaux of the Loire, flights 
Wong the Nile to see the pyramids, air safaris 
m Kenya; the idea of erasing over Venice 
-would fre spectacular,” says George Spyrou, 
c h ai r man of Airship Management Services 
in Cbnaecticat, winch owns and operates 
airships. “Airships are natural de-ins with 
ennseships — crating in to Cannes and then 
doing a sky cruise, you’d pack the ship oul*’ 
Airship Management operates Skyship 


(500 airships — originally developed by a 
British company. Airship Industries, of 
which Spyrou was marketing director. Is 
1990, Airship Industries collapsed, and de- 
sign' and manufacturing rights for tie Sky- 
ships were acquired bywesringbousc. 

The Skyship 600 is 193 feet long with a 
cabin for 10 to 12 passengers and a cruising 
speed of about SO miles an hour. The 6,000- 
cubiourdcr envelope (about 210,000 cubic 
feet) is filled with inert helium rather than 
the inflammable hydrogen of the prewar 
airships. (By a tragic irony tic U. S. govern- 
ment refused helium supplies for the Hrn- 
deuburg — for which the ship was designed 
— /or strategic reasons.) 

The early steps were also bedeviled fry 
structural failures in the elaborate aluminum 
skeletons enclosing the gasbags. The Skyships 
are buili with modem lightweight composite 
plastics — the gondola is bonded to ibe enve- 
lope — with fiber-optic avionics and controls. 

'‘State-of-the-art with conventional air- 
craft is what they call fly-by-wire, electronic 
signaling to tie controls with no rods and 
linkages,” says Roger Monk, architect of the 
Skyship and now with Westinghouse as tech- 
nical director of its airship program. “We’ve 
gone one step beyond that We are the first 


aircraft in the world to fly with a fly-by-light 
system. We’ve thrown away all electrics and 
do all tie signaling with optic fibers." 

Skyships are powered by two Porsche tur- 
bo engines, linked to variable-pitch propel- 
lers, which can vector, or swivel through 200 
degrees to move tie ship up and down and 
forward and backward. The ship can there- 
fore hover and maneuver with even more 
sensitivity than a helicopter (in fact, more 
like a Harrier jump-jet) but without the noise 
and commotion. In calm conditions, it can 
hover six inches from tie ground or sea. The 
only power an airship needs for hovering is 
to counteract tie wind. “It’s just like a fish in 
tie water up there,” Spyrou says. The old 
zeppdins could sail tie Atlantic at B0 miles 
per hour (making the crossing in two and a 
half days) but were clumsy when it came to 
docking: They were only "able to move for- 
ward against tie wind. 


W IND is the nemesis of an air- 
ship. In windy patches or up- 
drafts. tie ship can pitch and 
roll like a sailboat dipping 
through the waves. In bad weather, such as 
rain or snow, or wind over about 25 knots 
(29 miles per hour), most airship pilots 


would not take off — although an airship 
can cope with such weather when airborne. 

“ft’s not so much tie wind speed as tie 
gusting,” Spyrou says, “It's taking off and 
landing. If we have a steady 30-knot wind we 
can mast, no problem — but if we have 
gusting, shifting conditions of 20 to 30 knots, 
tie pilots are very uncomfortable. So we try 
not to fly. or stand off. it’s a buoyant vehicle. 
You are not going to have a problem unless 
you bump into something.” An airship is 
more durable than it looks, it can fly for 
several hours with a bole tie size of a saucer 
in tie envelope. 

“We're a lot less weaticr-dependem and 
we can fly twice as often as larger airships — 
we were overhead at tie Wembley Cup final 
when they were registering 35 knots,” says 
Hugh Band, marketing director erf Virgin 
Lightships, part of Virgin Atlantic. "Light- 
ships are smaller than Skyships, but more 
aerodynamic and sleeker. We can fly in, yes, 
in gusting conditions of about 30 knots. We 
fly 50 knots flat out in calm conditions.'' 

Lightships are made by American Blimp 
Corp. in Portland, Oregon. They cany four 
passengers and light up at night with a giant 
light bulb inside a translucent envelope. “We 
do champagne night cruises over tie theme 


parks in Orlando charging 580 to 5130 for 
half an hour to two hours," Band says. 
“We're looking ai developing a Jarger-scale 
passenger Lightship." 

Enter the U.S, Navy, which awarded 
Wcsiinghouse a S168 million contract to 
build a giant airship to replace Boeing 
AW ACS surveillance aircraft. An airship 
would have longer endurance and be much 
less expensive to operate. The Skyship 5000, 
400 feet long (nearly twice tie length of a 
747), with an envelope of 70,000 cubic me- 
ters — smaller than tie Hinder! burg’s 
200,000 cubic meters — is scheduled for 
1996. A civil version could carry 100 people 
in a double-deck configuration for trans- 
pacific and trans-Ailanuc flights at speeds 
up to 100 miles an hour. 

Meanwhile. Zeppelin Luftscbifftechnik in 
Friedricbsbafen, Germany, is developing 
new airships (205 and 330 feet long seating 
12 and 84 passengers) with a top speed of 87 
miles per hour. They will have semi-rigid 
airframes — a hybrid of a blimp and a 
prewar dirigible. In silhouette, they have an 
uncanny resemblance to tie old Zeppelins. 
Perhaps in 1996. when the prototype flies, 
the ghost of the Hin den burg will finally be 
exorcised.

A GREAT figure m tbe early 
. days of the game was Sidney 
Lcrtz, who was not only an expert 
player hut also on expert card im- 
giaa a Understandably, he refused 
to pi ay bridge for money, fearing 
somdtody vrotSd flunk te was us-

A lot of bridge magic was called 
for on the diagramed deal It was 
played in die very early days of die 
game. North-South wandered into 
.a “hopeless 1 ' seven hearts after us- 
ing tue Culbertson Four-Five No-

After a spade lead. South took 
dummy's spade winners, disposing

trumped a -dob. Next he cashed 
two diamond winners and trumped 


Jews were too powerful in Germa- 
ny, some hid Jews — known as 
Hausjuden — in their homes, some 
had even beard that Jews were be- 
. ing exterminated. MatHlde Mundt, 
a retired schoolteacher who was 
bam in Leer, near the Dutch bor- 
der, and remembers the Third 
.Reach with emotion, doubted that 
six mflHon Jews were killed. “There 
weren't six million, in Europe," die 
said. “Barely two million. And of 
them, there’s still a long line alive 
today whom we did not kill, no? 2 
kilted none." 

But for so many of the women, 
the war principally meant trying to 
survive. Ema Tietz of East Prussia 
recalled that in 1943, when she al- 
ready felt the war was lost, she was 
recruited by (he military, first to 
operate searchlights seeking out 
Affied aircraft and later to com- 
mand as anti-aircraft gun group. 
Eventually she spent three years as 
a Russian prisoner of war. In con- 
trast, Freya von Moltke of the rural 


TT/TTT 


village of Kreisau was a member of 
a dissident group called the Krri- 
sauer Circle through her aristocrat- 
ic husband, Helmulh, who was 
eventually arrested and executed 
by the Nazis. 

In their different ways, then, 
each portrait, each interview, pro- 
vides a valuable insight into what 
happened to half the German pop- 
ulation between 1933 and 1945. 
Yet in the end the book seems to 
suggest that Germany’s women re- 
acted little differently from its men. 
He women faced tbe day-to-day 
consequences of the Third Reich. 
Owings writes in her conclusion, 
“with varying morsels of impu- 
dence or despair, with hesitation or 
hope, or humor, with prejudice, 
with contradictions, with shame, 


with contradictions, with shame, 
with first refusals and second 
thoughts, and with blinders." And 
so probably did most men.

companies like Jones Cable

mwni nati ons have made fortunes crffcnng

“People here are used to paying for phone 
service, not television,” he said. 

Others note that the American cable indus- 
try grew up with advantages that are lacking 
in ftitaiiL “Cable in the US. was helped by 
the fact that television in the U.S. was truly 
awful whereas here we have four fairly good 
channels," sad Richard Ryder, an analyst 
with Salomon Brothers Inc. 

He also pointed out that satellite technol- 
ogy has advanced to the point where rdanve- 
W cheap dishes can now fit comfortably un- 
der the eaves of most houses. _ 

Worse, the local leviathan, British leie- 
has struck back at the cable operators, 


announcing that it will soon ext 
a system that it con lends wil. 
squeeze movies down existing copper wre 
phone lines. BT aims ultimately to offer a 
video-on-demand service nationwide. 

The cable operators sniff at that salvo. Tk 
C able Association’s director-general, Rich- 
ard Woollm calls it “ioo little too late. He 

asserts that the industry has already achieved 
critical pia-w with cables now laid past 3 
million British homes and with that number 
scheduled to more than double in the next 

two years. , 

What is more, specialists pointed out that 
the modern coaxial cable bongbuned bythe 
cable companies across the land have ou.uuu 
times the data-caming capacity of tradition- 
al copper wires. “What is video on demand 
compared with a svstem that can potentially 
offer 500 channels?" Mr. Ryder asks. “This is 

revolutionary.” , 

Even revolutions can be hard to sell, 
though. Mr. Cartoon, for instance, acknowl- 
edges that his company was on the brink or 
putting out of the British market before the 
law was changed in 1991 to allow cable com- 
panies to augment their offerings — ana 
earnings — vmh plain old telephone service. 

By all accounts the promised information 
revolution of cable - of householders not 
only bang able to recave 500 channels but 
also to shop, play games and even have their 
heart monitored over their own personal ac- 
cess road to the vast new information high- 
way was a financial nonstarter.

FRANKFURT — The Bundes-

tary policy on 

Some economists predicted, 
however, that the central bank 
would cut rates soon. 

■ At a meeting of its poBcymaking 

council, the bank left its discount 
and Lombard lending rates un- 
changed, at 5.75 and 6.75 percent 
respectively, the levels that have 
prevailed since Oct 22. The rates 


set an effective floor and ceiling for 
the German money markets. 

The announcement came only' 
three horns after a report that the 
key German M-3 money supply ag- 
gregate had climbed by 8.1 percent 
in December. That was thebifficst 
increase since December 1992, when 
M-3 expanded 8.7 percent, and 
again ovoshot the Bundesbank s 
target of 4-5 to 6.5 percent for 1993. 

“Money supply was a factor," in 
the decision to hold the tine on 
rates, said Ulrich Beckmann, a se- 
nior analyst at Deutsche Bank Re- 
search in Frankfurt. 

But ec onom ists took heart from a 
s tpranent by the bank that the De- 


cember money data had been dis- 
torted by special factors which bad 
frtt ti partially reversed in January. 

“I really think that something 
will come in two weeks time," said 
Wen Rust, a monetary analyst at 
Westdeotsche Landesbank in DOs- 
seldorf. . , , . 

Mr. Beckmann said that by then 
a labor agreement may have been 
reached in the German metalwork- 
ing industry. Many economists are 
expecting a settlement that would 
include raises of about 2 percent. 
Such a deal would help to open the 
way for a rate cul . ... 

Switzerland and Austria held 
their interest rates steady following 


and France’s important interven- 
tion rate was held at 6.2( 


6.20 percent. 

A monetary source in Rome said 
Italy would wait for a general re- 
duction in interest rates before eas- 
ing policy, and Lisbon dealers said 
the news from Frankfurt dimmed 
hopes of a cul in Portuguese rates. 

Despite optimism on German se- 
curities markets that rates would be 

cut at the Bundesbank's next meet- 
ing on Feb. 17. investors dumped 
stocks and bonds. 

The yield on the 10-year Goman 
government bond rose to 5.75 per- 
cent from 5.72.

Inienunioeal Herald Tribune 
FRANKFURT — Franz-Joref 
KortOm, who last week reported a 
precipitous drop in sales and the 
certainty of a loss at the German 
automaker Audi AG. wfl probably 
resign as chairman Friday at an 
emergency meeting of the supervi- 
sory board, company sources said. 

It appeared that Mr. KortOm, 43, 
who had held the office for just 13 
months, would become the latest 
executive in the automotive empire 
of Volkswagen AG to leave in a 
cloud of controversy. 

He is to be replaced by Herbert 
Dead, a 40-yeai-old engineer who 
heads Audi's technical develop- 
ment activities, according to a re- 
port to be published in the March 
issue of the German publication 
Manager Magazrn. A summary of 
the magazine article was circulated 
to media Thursday. 

Mr. KortOm did not go to work 
Thursday. Officially, both VW and 
Audi refused to confirm that he 
had been forced to quit because of 
the company’s poor performance 
in 1993. Sales of Audi automobiles 
plummeted 26 percent last year, to 
around 472,000 units, and the com- 
pany swung to a pretax loss of more 
San 100 mfflion Deutsche marks 
(S57.8 million) from a profit erf 508 
million DM the year before. 

Mr. Kortftm’s resignation would 
reflect the increasing desperation 
of Ferdinand PiSch, the Volks- 
wagen chair man, who has been at 
lhe center of managerial and finan- 
cial difficulties ever since be took 
over VW in Januaiy 1993. 

Mr. Piech a member of the 
Porsche family who was chairman 
or Audi before Mr- Kwtto*JT 
cently dismissed the head of VW’s 
Spanish subsidiary. SEAT SA. af- 
ter the company's loss for 1.93 
mounted to 123 billion pesetas 
(5874.8 million), 10 times lhe short- 
fall VW expected. 

Mr. PiSch has fired at least six 
members of the VW management 
board since he became chairman, 
leading many analysts to speculate 
that he was dismissing subordi- 


nates to divert attention from his 
own failings as a manager. ^ 

The magazine said Andi s poor 
1993 performance was partially a 
result of the fact that the company 
produced too many cars the year 

The only unit in the VW empire 
pairing a profit is Skoda, the Czech 
car maker it bought in 1991. t > 
Overall VW, which is Europe s 
largest automaker, had a loss of 2J 
billion DM last year as a result of 
weak demand ana a strong revalua- 
tion of the German currency. 

Independent auditors are still es- 
tablishing the exact size of Audi s 
loss in 1993, but Mr. KortOm sad 
last November that it would be 
more than 100 million DM and last 
week reiterated that estimate. 

It will be the first loss at Audi in 

15 years. , . . 

Mr. KortOm has conceded that a 
restructuring at the In golstad t* 
b awl ammmaker has been proceed- 
ing slower than Volkswagen expect- 
ed. Bui he also sought to offset 
financial difficulties with a senes of 
announcements on new products 
and business strategies designed to 
put the company back on trade. 

It was Mr. PiSch who famed Mr. 
KortOm, a marketing expert, from 
Daimler-Benz AG. 

Mr. Piech was chosen to tod 
VW because or his reputation for 
gening thing s done and his stand- 
ing as one of Germany’s most re- 
spected engineers. 

But Mr. Piech has been distract- 
ed from VWs financial perfor- 
mance by the legal tangle involving 
josi Lopez de Arriortua, a former 
General Motors Corp. executive 
who became VWs purchasing and 
production manager last sprint

man plants, including the introduc- 
tion of a four-day week and 20 
percent cul in pay for the compa- 
ny’s 100,000 workers in Germany. 

Audi recently announced it 
would cut work and pay for its 
workers in Ingolstadt by 10 percent 
in order to save 3,000 jobs.

Blocmbcrg Business News 

WASHINGTON — Gold- 
man, Sachs & Co. agreed 
Thursday to pay a $250,000 fine 
to settle Securities and Ex- 
change Commission charges 
that tbe firm improperly re- 
corded certain U S. treasury se- 
curities trades. 


Goldman realized tax losses 
at the end of 1985 without actu-

gainers on the New York Stock 
Exchange by a 3-io-2 ratio. 
Trading continued the brisk pace 
seen in recent days. 

Market focus has been keyed on 
interest rates since Monday, when 
the chairman of the Federal Re- 
serve Board. Alan Greenspan, said 
the central bank was inclined to lift 
short-term interest rates before in- 
flationary threats developed. 

The Federal Open Market Com- 
miuee met in Washington on Thurs- 
day, fueling speculation the Fed 
would push up interest rates on Fri- 
day after the key employment fig- 
ures Tor January are released. 

The Fed's failure to act during its 
customary intervention time on 
Thursday despite a firm federal 
funds rate also kindled rate con- 
cerns. Although the Fed’s inaction 
may have been technical in nature, 
some analysts said it increased the 
probability of a tightening move. 

The possibility of a Fed move 


gaming % to 7ft. The company said 
it knew of no reason for the unusual- 
ly active trade. Philip Morris also 
rose, gaming % to 60Vk 

Wal-Mart Stores rose W to 28 
after having its investment rating 
raised by Kidder Peabody. Wal- 
Mart was among the national 
chains reporting January sales. In- 
dustrywide, sales were poor largely 
because of severe weather and the 
California earthquake. 

Conspicuous losers i n cluded Ven- 
triiex, which tumbled 4 to 3516 in 
heavy over-the-counter trading. 
Hambrecht & Quist slashed the 
stock to “underperform” from 
“buy" citing competitive pressures 
on the medical supply company. 

Maytag fell 214 to 1 7ft on the 
New York Stock Exchange after 
reporting earnings of 16 cents a 
snare in its fourth quarter, up from 
11 cents a year before bat below 
estimates.

Bloomberg Businas New 
NEW YORK — The dollar rase 
Thursday against the Deutsche 
mark and other currencies amid 
speculation that the Federal Re- 
serve Board might raise interest 
rates soon. 

The dollar’s rise against the yen 
was restrained, however, when the 


Foreign Exchange 


members of Japan's coalition gov- 
ernment failed to agree on tax cats. 

Many traders bought dollars 
Thursday morning after the Fed 
unexpectedly failed to add reserves 
to the U.S. banking system to drive 
the federal funds rate down from 3 
1/16 percent. The funds rate is 
what banks charge each other for 
overnight loans. Analysis had ex- 
pected the Fed to keep the rate at 3 
percent. 

“More people are looking far a 
rate increase after today,” said Dear 
□is Pettit, foreign-exchange manag- 
er in New Yak fa Long-Term 
Credit Bank of Japan. Currency 
traders kept a dose eye on the fed 
funds rate Thursday because the 
Fed’s Open Market Committee was 
meeting in Washington to set mone- 
tary policy for the next six weeks. 


Speculation about a rate increase 
heated up Monday when the cen- 
tral hank chairman, Alan Green- 
Span, said rates would rise “at some 
point” as the economy expanded. 

The dollar dosed Thursday at 
1.7413 DM, np from 1.7334 DM on 
Wednesday. The U.S. currency 
rose to 5.9065 French francs from 
3.8825 francs and to 1.4315 Swiss 
francs from 1.4510 francs. The 
pound fell to $1.4874 from $1.4956. 

The dollar edged up to 108.15 
yen from 108.05 yen. 

The dollar dipped momentarily 
after Germany’s Bundesbank left 
its own discount rate unchanged at 
5.73 peroenL 

Many traders were reluctant to 
buy or sell the dollar aggressively 
before Friday’s report on US. em- 
ployment in January. Without 
steady job creation, the Fed is con- 
sidered unlikely to raise rates to 
control the inflation that usually 
accompanies an expansion. 

The dollar was sold against the 
yea after leaders of Japan’s coali- 
tion government failed to agree on 
Prime Minister Morihiro Hosoka- 
wa's plan to cut the nation's taxes 
by 6 trillion yen ($55 billion).

U.S. Seeks to Calm Movie Trade Debate 


Reutm 

BRUSSELS — The United States has been 
trying to tone down its dispute with Europe over 
access for Hollywood films and Europe's desire to 
protect its cinema, a U-S. official said Thursday. 

Joan Spero. U.S. undersecretary of state for 
economics and agriculture, said she had held talks 
in Paris and Brussels in recent days in which she 
expressed the U.S. wish for a change in discussions 
of the issue. 


A European Commission spokesman said a 
calmer approach would be welcome. 

America is seeking to ensure access for film and 
music exports, which earn it more than S3 J b3Hon 
a year. 

Europeans, particularly the French, are worried 
that the wave of U.S. products on European televi- 
sion and movfe screens win dilute their culture and 
swamp the domestic industry.

Czech TV Goes Com mercial 

New Station Vies With State Broadcaster 


If Investor’s Europe 


-KLMRoyal Dutch Airlines, re- 
peating hi^ ^ 

le !i-£F ro PV sa ^ ^ursday it would 
■sell 20 million new shares in global 
markets next month. 

Analysts expressed disappcdni- 
wort about the dilutive effect on 
exiting shareholdings, whidh they 
esuaated at 6 to 9 percent, butlfcw 
applauded KLM’s move to 
Strengthen its balance sheet. 

KLM also said that expected to 
post a “slight profit” for the finan- 
cial year ending March 31. 

But several analysts said the re- 
port of a profit for the October- 
December quarter of 15 million 
guilders (57.7 mflhoij), compared 
with a net loss in the year-earlier 
period oT 437.8 million gmfcW 
indicated that KLM would have a 
very positive earnings surprise for 
the /nil year. 

Analysts said they expected the 
Dutch airline to adjust its projec- 
tions when Jt got Closer to making 
thepublk offering. 

KLM declined to say at what 
price it would offer the new shares, 
bid most analysts said it seemed 
likely that it would be at a slight 
discount to where the stock was 
trading in MarCh. 

KLM shares closed Thursday at 
48.20 guilders, down from 49.00 


guilders the day before. KLM 
. could raise approximately 900 mfl- 
tion guilders if H sells the new 
snares at 47. to 48 guilder. 

Bert Siebrand. an analyst with 
the Amsterdam bank Ddta Lloyd, 
sa id he was disappointed by the 
size of the offering, but added: 

“Ultimately, after the first shock, 
its positive for KLM. The dilution 
is a small price to pay for .900 
million guilders added to the baK 
ance sheet” 

Cces Haasnoot of Kempea & 
Co. in Amste rdam adjusted his 
profit estimate for the year upward 
to 100 million guilders from 50 mfl- 
lion guilders. KLM would have to 
suffer a foanh-quaneT loss of 210 
mpion guilders to give it a profit of 
50 million guldecs, a number that 
could plausibly fit the projection of 
a “sJjght profit,” Mr. Haasnoot 
-said. He said he thnughr a logs of 
that size was unlikely. . 

Wflfemina Rysdyk. transport an- 
alyst for Bank van Meer James Ca- 
pcl in Amster dam, said the third- 
quarter numbers had come in 
above her estimates, but she was 
disappointed- by KLMs difficulty 
in generating decent yields, mea- 
sured by average revenue per pas- 
senger Sown one kilometer. Yields 
fell by 8 percent for the period.

Special to the H«mU Tribune 

. PRAGUE — If the Nova TV logo bursts onto 
television screens across the Czech Republic as 
scheduled Friday night, it will launch the country 
into a new era of commercial entertainment 

Nova, a joint Czech-North American venture, is 
the first private commercial television station in 
the former Eastern bloc. 

“We think that weH bring a new concept of 
rr\trr^fnmw> i and news,” said Vladimir Zelezny, 
the station’s director-general 

Nova was awarded a broadcasting license on 
Feb. 8, 1993, and has expanded to include about 
200 employees in seven offices since the idea was 
hatched in tire autumn of 1991 

Funding for. the venture cranes primarily from 
the parent company of Nova’s North American 
. partner, Central European Development Co„ 
which supplies 75 percent of the capital The group 
— which includes a former U.S. ambassador to 
Austria, Ronald Lauder, and a former ambassador 
to_ Hungary, Mark Palmer — is committed to 
invest at least 1.6 biHioa koruny (SS3 million) in 
the project 

The Czech Savings Bank supplies the other 25 
percent financing for Nova, while Mr. Zelezny* 5 
Central European TV for the 21st Century is the 
legal Hcense bolder and a nonfinancial investor. 

Mr. Zdezny, 48, the mastermind behind the 
station, began his broadcasting career as a 17-year- 
old producer for Czech state television. He was one 
of three people who broadcast illegal protests of 
the 1968 Soviet-led invasion. 

Programming on Nova mil be quite different 
from that offered by Czech state television, Mr. 
Zdezny said. He has stockpiled an arsenal of 
blockbuster feature films and series from distri- 
buters such as Columbia/Tristar, Twentieth Cen- 
tnry-Fox and Disney as well as from top Czech 
producers. 

Nova is hoping its programming will ensure it a 
niche in this hungry market of 10 million television 
viewers. Many of the programs have never been 
seen here, which Nova employees are quid: to 
point oul 

Nova’s schedule m dndfs such U.S. hits as 
M*A*S*H and Dynasty, along with Disney ani- 
mated features. 

Faced with the loss of its 40-year monopoly, 
fbi grb state television has raVen several measures 
to help it compete with the private operator, in- 
cluding upgrading graphics and sets, launching an 


advertising campaign and gearing towards more 

commercial prog rammin g 

With an 1.8 billion koruny annual stale subsidy 
and a restructured advertising system. Czech state 
television is hoping io cling to its dominant market 
position. 

But the challenger is undaunted. 

“They haw some good programs, but not 
many,” said Petr Sladecek, bead of Nova’s pro- 

*We think that we’ll bring a 
new concept of entertainment 
and news.’ 

Vladimir Zelezny, director-general of 
Nova TV 

gram acquisition department. “In a few months 
there will be no competition.” 

The state-nm station is playing its aces early. 
pinning the first two “Godfather” movies on con- 
secutive Fridays, with Part II opposite Nova’s 
planned lau nc h . 

Nova is planning to counter with a renowned 
C recfr film, ‘Obccna Skola,” followed by “Gbosi- 
busters.” 

Advertisers are not doubting Nova's potential 
According to Nova’s director of sales. Barry 
Hirsch, filling spots for the station’s 20-hour aver- 
age broadcast day has been an easy task. 

‘T'hw want us to win the competition with 
Cze ch TV,” he said of Czech advertising agencies. 
“With two stations competing, they’ll get the bet- 
ter rate.” 

Inrai advertising agencies aren't the only ones 
who will be glad to see Nova on the air. 

Columbia and Nova have worked out a barter 
agreement that allows Mr. Pollock to sell his own 
air time to advertisers. In exchange, Colombia 
Tristar waives the acquisition fee for its program- 
ming. Mr. Pollock said be likes the arrangement 

Nova's signal will beam from the Metstanka 
Beseda complex, which has hosted two other land- 
mark broadcasts. In May 1953, the first Czechoslo- 
vak television transmission was broadcast from the 
complex. Fifteen years later, it served as the head- 
quarters for the rebellious anti-Communist broad- 
casts. 

Mr. Zdezny said he is exdted about seeing the 
third incarnation of Chech television Friday night, 
and said be would feel much like a proud father.

BONN — German steelmakers 
came out of a meeting Thursday 
with Economics Minister Gunter 
Rexrodt and urged the European 
Union to “not just announce subsi- 
dy discipline, but to final]}' start 
practicing it," 

The steelmakers' section of the 
German Industrial Association 
added in a statement: 'The unre- 
strained subsidy policy of some 
governments that are obstructing 
the market is the main cause of the 
present European steel crisis.”

sluggish reaction to economic crisis 
on the very structure of the Ger- 
man political system they have pro- 
moted, which often rewards con- 
flict over compromise and results 
in endless debates on topics of 
questionable relevance while im- 
portant issues languish. 

A frequently cited example is the 
ongoing debate over how to finance 
nursing care for the nation's senior 
citizens, which has totally eclipsed 
initiatives to stimulate economic 
growth and create jobs, the issue 
voters care about zno su 

‘The nursing issue is being dis- 
cussed as if it were the most impor- 
tant thing in the world while unem- 
ployment rises to record levels,” 
marveled Mr. Puf. “The discussion 
is so removed from reality that one 
really has to question what the gov- 
ernment is up to.” 

Many people are asking that 
question — and answering it ihem- 
sdves. 

“Our do-nothing politicians are 
holding their heads above water 
with ties,” said Gaby Krautkr&mer, 
president of a nationwide associa- 
tion of waking women who blames 
the country’s collective leadership 
and “negative media” for the wob- 
bly state of the Goman economy. 

“If nothing changes, the gap be- 
tween rich and poor will keep get- 
ting bigger and there will be no 
more middle class,” she said, add- 
ing, “The voters wfll pass judg- 
ment.” 

How much of Germany’s current 
economic malaise voters attribute 
to the laissez-faire policies of Mr. 
Rexrodt’s Free Democrats, a 
white-collar party of working pro- 
fessionals that has traditionally 
played a kingmaker role in German 
politics, and how much to Mr. 
Kohl's failure to deliver a “no- 
pain” unification will help deter- 
mine the shape of the next govern- 
ment. 

So far, Mr. Kohl seems to be 
talrinp much of the blame, while 


Mr. Rexrodi and the opposition lacks, all critics agree, is a German

Stoppages 

Reuter i 

FRANKFV.IRT —German 
workers on Thursday staged 
their biggest day yet of nation- 
wide protests aimed at ward- 
ing off employers’ calls for a 
wage freeze. 

The 1G Metal! union said 

176.000 workers in nearly 600 
companies halted production 
for several hours in a fount 
day of industrial action, this 
time at major manufacturers 
including car makers. 

It said the main focus had 
been the state of Nonh Rhine- 
Westphalia. which includes the 
industrial heartland of the 
Ruhr, where more than half the 
stoppages look place. These in- 
cluded an Adam Opel AG 
plant in Bochum, where 13,000 
workers took pan. In Cologne. 

22.000 stopped work for several 
hours at plants of Ford Werkc 
AG and Klflckner-Huinboldt- 
Deutz AG. 

Workers are calling for raises 
of up to 6 percent, but have 
said they would accept less if 
job guarantees were provided,

Werner Neugebauer called on 
employers 10 set a date for talks

erating officer for Nynex UK. With 
a franchise that covers 25 million 
British homes. Mr. Rabuffo noted 
that eventually his British operation 
could rival in size a large regional 
U.S. phone company. 


As the United Slates moves to-

vice versa. Britain has become a

“Cable companies can knock on

system and watch more TV/ and 
people will say ‘Why should 1; it's 
all rubbish.’ ” explained Bill Dix-

“1 can do things here that we can

Mr. Rabuffo said.

companies, which are facing grow-

to reverse roles and play upstart.

BOMBAY — These days, international inves-

“Six trillion yen of tax cuts will . 
pull up the growth rate by 0.75

said Hisashi Inoue, chief economist 

pf Nikko Research Center Ltd. ■ 

, There were also warnings on in- 
flationaiy fallout, and there was 
poncem that the stumuha could 
have tbe effect, of slowing needed 
business resturcturing. 

; “The tax reform absolutely lacks 
theideaof bow to reduce the gov- 
ernment expenditure to combat the 
revenue shortfall,” said Temhiko 
Mano, adviser to the president of 
Batik, of Tokyo Ltd. 

F Prior to the announcement of the

The Finance Muiistiy said that

of the ^zmual revenue l

trillion would go toward redeeming

However, many of the foreign investors who

Tbe combination of investor enthusiasm and 
Indian corporations’ desire to raise money to pre-

national reforms has spawned a rash of convert-

pert Murdoch’s media conglomer- 
ate that was on the brink of bank- 
ruptcy just three years ago, wtd 
Thursday its net profit doubled id 
the second quarter and rose 70 per- 
cent in the first half. 

Profit was spurred by strength m 
the company’s television, airline and 
film units, including a 183 percent 
gain at its Twentieth Century-Fox 
Film Crap, studio. “There's a bit of 
‘Mrs. Doubtfire* in there,” said 
Lachlan Drummond, an analyst at 
CS First Boston, referring to the 
popular film released in November. 

News Corp. said r.et profit in the 
three months ended Dec. 31 rose 
102 percent from a year earlier, to 
522.9 million Australian dollars 
(S373.9 million). The second-quarter 
results included a one-time gam 
from the sale of a portion of the 
company’s interest in the Souih Chi- 
na Morning Post of Hong Kong. 

Not including that one-time 
gain, profit in the second quarter 
rose 32 percent, to 326.6 million 

dollars. „ Q 

Half-year net profit rose to 768.9 
million dollars, or 34 cents a share, 
from 490.1 million dollars, or 30 
cents a share, a year ago. 

News Corp.’s shares on the Syd- 
ney Stock Exchange surged 5 per- 
cent on the results, closing up 5*. 
cents at 10.56.

Land for China 


Age tee France-Presse 

LONDON — China has success- 
My soLdlts Iriggest Eurobond issue, 
raising $1 bflEoo, with strong de- 
mand from Aaa and the United 
States, maricet analysts said here cm 
Th.trdkiy. The response from Euro- 
pean investors was mixed, they said. 

The 10-year issue matures on 
Feb. 17, 2004. The price was set at 
99.406 percent with a 6 i percou 
coupon, giving a spread erf 85 basis 
points, or 0.85 percentage pomt, 
Ever 10-year U.S. Treasury issues. 

That yield “was not enough to 
really entice European i nvesto rs, 
said one analyst wno preferred not 
to be identified. 

The issue, announced on 


dra 


W ednesday , drew attention to Chi- 
na’s voracicras appetite for cash. 
The Bank fra International Settle- 

meats in Basel, in its report on the 
first half of 1993, said that according 
to Us calculations, China had drawn 
$11 4hfllion in the 12 months u» the 

mkidle of 1993. That comprised new 

of $33 bflh'on and tbe with- 
„ of S75 billion from bank 
its, the BIS said. 
ie global issue meant China 
^piling the bonds simulta- 
neously on the Asian, European 
and U.S. markets. China has al- 
ready tapped the European and 
Asian markets with small e r isaia, 

but this was the first time that Ua 

investors had been invited to sub- 
scribe to a Chinese bond issue. 
“The Europeans seem more re- 


was 


hxetant than others, because of the 
perceived ride that China repre- 
sents for Europeans,” said Tim 
Streeter, head of the Eurobond sec- 
tion at Union Bank erf Switzerland. 

“However, the Americans are 
more used to investing in emerging 
markets,” he said, “and they, are 
quicker to buy the story of China s 
economic takeoff.” 

Globally, the issue “has been very 

successful," said Mark Watson of 
Salomon Brothers Inc. “The Asians 
bought around half the bonds at the 

start of the day, the Europeans and 

the Americans splitting the rest. 

Standard & Poor’s Corp- <» 
Wednesday gave the Chinese bond 
a rating of BBB, the middle of the 


lowest category of bonds consid- 
ered to be investment grade. 

MoodVs Investors Service gives a 
higher rating of A3 to Chmas for- 
eign debt 

S&P still said its rating outlook 
for China was generally positive. It 
said this "reflects the likelihood 
that political and macroeconomic 
developments in China will sup- 
prat progressive, albeit uneven, im- 
plementation of the economic re- 
form program." 

S&P said, however, that “cre- 
ditworthiness remains constrained 
bv recurring episodes c>f e*»nomic 
overheating — as in 1988-1989 and 
since 1992 — and the uncertainties 
related to China’s potentially diffi- 
cult leadership succession."

JAL Chooses Pratt & Whitney 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dvptacfta 

TOKYO — Japan Air Lines on 
Thursday awarded Pratt & Whit- 
ney a $440 million contract for 44 
engines for the Boeing 777s that 
JAL has ordered. 

Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United 
Technologies Corp- •« ^ 

PW 4000 series engine over General 
Electric Co.'s series 90 and Rous 
Royce PLCs new Trent 800 senes. 

JAL has ordered 10 of the new 
777s from Boeing Co. and has op- 
tions on 10 more. 


Tbe ca rrier said it had looked at 
reliability, safety, environmental 
considerations and product support 
before choosing Pratt & Whitney. 

“It was always going to be a 
difficult order to win.” a Rolls 
Royce spokesman said in London. 
He noted that JAL and Japan’s two 
other airlines. All Nippon Airways 
and Japan Air Systems, have been 
regular Pratt & Whitney customers. 
With the Japanese stress on long- 
term business relationships, he said 
Rolls Royce faced a major chal- 
lenge. (Bloomberg, AFX)

Knight Loses, 
But Team Wins 


The AsxtKUUed Press 

Dan Dakich is do Bobby Knight 
And for that, Indiana fans are 
probably grateful 
When Knight was ejected with 
two technical fouls early in the sec- 
ond half, Dakich, Indiana's assis- 
tant coach, engineered an 1 1 -point 
rally that culminated in the 14th- 
ranked Hooswns' 87-83 overtime 
victory over Ohio State on Wednes- 


21 seconds into the game, Brian

day night in Bloomington, Indiana. 

"As the game wore on. particu- 
larly in the last 16 or 17 minutes of 
the' game. I thought the Indiana 
coaching got a lot belter," Knight 
said. “I thought the officiating 
must have been better also." 

Knight has been ejected from 
two exhibition games — one this 
season — and two Big Ten games 
in 23 years at Indiana. Both techni- 
cals od Wednesday night, which 
came 69 seconds apart, were for 
arguing with officials. 

Ohio State {9-20. 2-6 Big Ten) 
made three free throws on Knight's 
tec hnicals and scored on the pos- 
session after each to take a 49-38 
lead with 14:49 to go. After that, 
Indiana scored 10 consecutive 
points to get back into the game. 

The Hoosiers (13-4, 6-2) extend- 
ed the nation's longest home win- 
ning streak to 40 games. 

Pat Graham scored 29 points for 
Indiana, while Lawrence Funder- 
burke scored 29 for Ohio State. Just

Southeastern Conference) stopped 
visiting Alabama ( 20-7, 6-3). 

No. 16 Wisconsin 87, Michigan

points, 25 in the first half, as the 
Badgers. (14-3, 5-3 Big Ten) play- 
ing at home without their ailing 
freshman center, Rashard Griffith, 
used a conference-record 14 3- 
pointers to bury tbe Spartans < 14-7, 
5-4). 

Marquette 58, No. 17 Atahama- 
Birmingham 54: Roney Eford 
scored 13 points, three on a go- 
ahead shot with 1:24 left, as the 
Warriors (14-5. 6-1) beat via ting 
Alabama-BiimLogham (16-3. 4-2) 
for the second time this season and 
retained first place in the Great 
Midwest Conference. Carter Long 
scored 19 points for the losers. 

No. 18 St Louis H Dayton 75: 
Erwin Claggett, with seven of a 
school-record 14 3-pointers, scored 
25 points as the Btinkens ( 1 7- 1 , 4- 1

But not. many amatems have 
such an imposing record, and tbe. 
letter woribed. J emis rm. who will 
turn 29 mi' May 18. is now a first- 
year professional with the Word- 
Ptafcct team, which is based in tbe 
Ned^riaads. 

“I know he’s 28 years old,r said 
Jan T Raas, the WordPerfect direo- 
tor of qxnts, manapng to look du- s 
bioos and unconcerned at the same 
time. “I saw him in tbe Tour Dn 
Pont, and! ibink he’s a good rider. 

I hope bell be asefoL” 

Janisan sounded mare poative 
when hfr age was mentioned. . 

think ifs great, I realty do,” he. 
said recentiy at tin team's formal 
. presentation in a hold in Brussels. 
**I believe Tm mature, I’ve gone to 
school so I can leave tint forest.- 1 
see a lot of riders wbo turn pro at 
an early age and they have anxieties 
about what tfaeyU do after cydmg 
without a college degrec. rm com- 
forlable witii where Tm at” 

Born and reared in Salt Lake 
City, Jemison began racing only at 
age Zl. “Part-time,” he said^ “as 
serious as I could while finishing- 
scbooL^Hehasa bachelor's degree 
in economics from the University 
of Utah. 

After graduation, he camefo Eu- 
rope andraced foe three years with 
French amateur dobs, the last two 
yean with Chiieaubriant. 

“Qdteaubriant gave metfie op- 
portunity to race virtuafly any race- 
I wanted to,” Jeunson said. "They 

were wilting to take a ride based an 
my good results my first year in 
France. And right away I started 
raring very well.” 

That gave him confidence mHs 
ability to survive far from home. *1 ' 
think Tve managed to do it and ! 
tbinlc Tve managed to do lt very 
wall,” he said. “A lot of American 
riders never adapt, and they end Bp 
going baric home.” • 

WordPerfect, the computer 'soft- 
ware maker, is based in Utah, 
which did not hurt Jemison's 
chances of hwfag a job when he 
sent out his letter. - - - 
“A lot of things feH together for 
me," he said. “1 seat my porticOo 
to Jan Raas in Holland and to the 
WordPerfect office in Utah just be- 
fore the world championships and I 
explained that Fd follow up with a 
phone call after die championships. - 
And I did thaL" Hefiniriied20th in 
that race in Oslo last summer.. 

“I had this very, vexystrtmg fed- 
iug about Wordftrfect, and I made 
sure die directcBS saw utyiendts and 
had a feeting for nty amhstious,” 
Jemison continued- “I gave it 100 
percent effort and it paid off.”

in the botd lobby_ after \

rirmed tiwi he does ctimb wdl a^ * 


a speriahsL Nor docs he consider . 
Tmnsdf a time-trialing spedaEst * 
despate three victories as an ama- . 
tear in the race against the dock. 

What he is, he ejqtiained as a ; 
fwi-Tail pianist knpiobably began • 
to jday for the hinch crowd, is an • 
all-arounder with a preference for ; 
long and tough races. ... • 

•Thafswity I wasn’t realty inte^ [ 
ested in riding for an American . 
team,” he said. “I wanted to be part > 
of & professional team in Europe ] 
because I racebetter in Europe, Fm .

Bullish on Prisons 


Classics or Jazz: Why Not Both, Together?

Germane Greer Opens 



By Russell Baker 


N EW YORK — Get inio plas- 
hes. the dreary old erown-up 


1 N tics, the dreary old grown-up 
advised Dustin Hoffman in “The 
Graduate,'* and young men every- 
where laughed.' I wasn't quite 
young enough to get the joke. 

The dreary old fellow was simply 
tipping Dustin on a good capitalis- 
tic enterprise, wasn’t he? 

This was surely sounder advice 
than Horace Greeley's “Go west, 
young wan, and grow up with the 
country,” which people have lis- 
tened to without laughter since 
Greeley issued it in 1850. 

Unlike getting into plastics, go- 
ing west plunged American youth 
into the degrading world of federal 
dependency, for Gredey's west was 
the ultimate handout state. 

The U. S. Army disposed of in- 
convenient Indians for Western- 
ers. The government gave them 
(and incredibly cheap , when not 
free. Western cattle, agricultural, 
mining and timber industrialists 
still enjoy big-hearted federal sub- 
sidies in the form of cheap rents 
for culling, digging and using pub- 
lic lands. 

By contrast, a young man getting 
into' plastics was the very model of 
the entrepreneurial spirit so highly 
cherished today. 1 urged my own 
children to do it. 

I pointed out that with millions 
of young Americans laughing along 
with Dustin at the idea of getting 


where they invested their fortunes 
and cellared their wine as soon as 
they learned that Florida law shel- 
ters the bankrupt from importu- 
nate bill collectors. 

It was 1967 when Dustin was 
advised to get into plastics, and the 
business picture has changed a lot 
since then. Nowadays if I wanted 
to point him to a sure-fire growth 
industry, Td say, “Dustin, get inio 

prisons.”

P ARIS — Lalo Schifrin did not feel 
comfortable telling (he guys he 


The intense political pressure to 
lock up bad characters forever is 
going to create business opportuni- 
ties that most people, including the 


S ilitidans. have not yet foreseen, 
ere’s how: 


into plastics, plastics were going to 
be bard pressed to find bright 


young workers. This meant plastics 
would probably pay top dollar for 


would probably pay top dollar for 
entry-level jobs in a field where 
fortunes were sure to be made. 


My children laughed. Why 
should they face the rigors of capi- 
talistic competition, they asked, 
when they could go west, get into 
California’s defense-industry co- 
lossus and live off the federal dole 
handed out by the Pentagon? 

And look what happened to 
them: After working their way to 
the top of multibillion-dollar de- 
fense industries, they used to enjoy 
coming east to taunt their father 
about his taxes bong used to buy 
their Lamborehinis. Chateau La- 
tour and South American ranches. 

Now the joke's on them, because 


they are as bankrupt as the rest of 
Gau/braia. This means they have to 
live on their vast Florida estates. 


The idea of locking them up for- 
ever is so exhilarating to the voters 
right now that they are forgetting 
that forever, as the old song says, is 
a long,, long time. 

The average bad character who 
goes over for good this year at age 
21 will probably still be m the joint 
50 or 60, and in some cases 70 yeans 
from now. This means that by the 
year 2050 prisons are going to be 
swarming with geriatric cases. 

The average prison wQl then con- 
front all the nightmarish problems 
now dumped onto retirement and 
nursing homes, plus a few more: 
prisoners who are incontinent, all 
memory gone, unable to walk or sit 
up unaided or feed or bathe them- 
selves. 

This isn’t exactly what politi- 
cians and public now have in mind 
when cheering for prison eternal, 
but they are soon going to be stuck 
with it, and a young go-getter can 
make a fortune by getting in on the 
ground floor of businesses that will 
eventually be needed to cope with 
it. 

Needs will include: vast quanti- 
ties of privately supplied in-prison 
geriatric nursing and medical coun- 
seling; sound amplifiers for cells of 
Alzheimer's patients so that con- 
stantly repeated recordings can re- 
mind them where they are and why 
they are being punished. 

Later, when the public rebels 
against the expense of keeping de- 
crepit crocks in prisons, there will 
be pressure to house them in low- 
cost halfway nursing homes until 
Congress decides what to do next. 

Get into prisons, young man, 
and make your fortune in old cons. 


IT comfortable telling the guys he 
jammed with in Left Bank caves about 
going to church to hear his professor. Oliv- 
ier Messiaen, play classical masses. He 
couldn't talk his fellow students at the 
Paris Conservatory into catching Chet 
Baker either. This was 1955. the twain did 
not meet. 

About the same time, Stan Kenton add- 
ed alarge string section to his already very 
big band A second tour bus was needed. 
One, it was announced, would be for 
sleeping, the other for partying. With the 
exception of a bisocial cellist, the string 
section all opted for sleep. The horns and 
the rhythm section partied. I fust heard 
(be story from someone involved and have 
since beard it told to illustrate how jazz 
and classical music were poles apart. 

For better or worse — or better and 
worse — they have been coming closer. 


Igor Stravinsky wrote “Ebony Concerto" 
for Woody Herman's band Duke Elling- 
ton began to be called America’s greatest 
composer. Leonard Bernstein wrote “West 
Side Story," and he hugged Ornette Cole- 
man after a set in the Five Spot Gaffe — 
“they" approved of “us." Wynton Marsa- 
lis won both classical and jazz Grammy 
awards. Schifrin, 62, recently released two 
albums tilled “Jazz Meets the Symphony." 

Schifrin has played a key role in the 
rapprochement tor a long time. His father, 
Louis, was concertmaster of the Buenos 
Aires Philharmonic; Schifrin was seduced 
by jazz at an early age. Formed by both 
cultures, he fell no obligation to choose 
between them. All music was related why 
did people cut it up and squeeze it into 
small boxes? Returning from Paris to his 
native Buenos Aires in 1956. Schifrin 
found bis confrere Astor Piazzolla an- 
guished about being squeezed into a tango 
box. He tried to reassure him that the 
bridge he was building over troubled water 
between the tango and the concerto was 
structurally sound “Don't spend so much 
energy fighting "them,’ Astor," he said 
“Who cares what it's called Just be Piaz- 
zolla." 

Schifrin was good at just being Lalo 
Schifrin. Equally at ease conducting, com- 
posing, arranging or playing the blues on 
the piano, he organized a big band in the 
Basie tradition and fronted it. Passing 
through Argentina onaU.S. State De- 
partment-sponsored world tour. Dizzy 
Gillespie was so impressed by the band 
and its arrange men is that he hired Schifrin 
on the spot. He was 24 (“What a great gig, 
man!"). His suite “Gfflespiana” was pre- 
miered in Carnegie Hall in 1961. 

Schifrin was also good at just making 



where they could support each other rath- 
er than water each other down. Here the 
Stream would be an efficient conveyer of 
cont e mporary emotion rather than a con- 
trived current 

Hollywood of all places. 

Johnny Maude! combined jazz subject 
matter with classical textures to accent the 
energy of “I Want to Live." It was a sort of 
an inside joke more than a credit He was 
more oal-from about it writing for the TV 
series “Peter Gtinn." It was on the table, 

producers were talking. “Believe it or not," 
Schifrin said “I moved to L. A. for artistic 
reasons, not. for the money. Hollywood 
studios already employed symphony or- 
chestras. the best jazzmen were out there. I 
rhnn g h t the movies might be the perfect 
place for jazz to meet the symphony, 
which always was and still is nay goat

anybody, but Schifrin is aware that Stra- 
vinsky had also been launched on the. road 

to success by writing program music, en- 
hancing ballet in that case. 

He scored “The Cincinnati Kid" (with 
Ray Charles singing), “Bullitt.” “Dirty 
Hany ” “Cool HandLuke" and the TV 
series “Starsky and Hutch.” Much of the 
music had a syncopated edge and it all had 
an unmistakable personality. He won four 
Grammy awards and received six Oscar 
n ominatio ns A S chifrin score became a 
hip stamp. But he waved no stylistic flag, 
he was not “jazzing np" anything. Like all 
successful movie music, it did not call 
attention to itself. It enhanced images . 
How would he describe Ms larger-than- 
sotmd ..theme for “Mission Impossible”? 
He laughed: “Try this. ‘A 5/4 boogie- 
woogie with Latin implications.’ Seriously, 
I don't know what it is. It just came out 
Kke that.” 

In 1992, he recorded “Jazz Meets Tbe 
Symphony" (Atlantic) with the London 
Philharmonic and his trio (Grady Tate, 
drums, Ray Brown, bass). Volume Two is 
due out tins spring. S chifri n is one of the 
few composers who can make a symphony 
orchestra take off on “Bines in the Base- 
ment” 

He uses Dizzy, Duke and MDes as 
“points of departure-”’ The trick is “to 
have as much fun as they did in the first 
place. Imitation is not fun. They did what 
they did better than I can do it The fan is 
to discover something new. To recreate. 
Re-creating can be part of the creative 
process. Any musician of any style can 
incorporate dements from any other style 
as long as their soul remains unoqmpro- 
mised. As we approach the millenniam, it 
is my hope that my two ‘Jazz Meets The 
Symphony" albums will come to be consid- 
ered a celebration of walls and fences 
coming down.” 


Lafo Sdnfrin thought of movies as a “perfect pbee for jazz to inert the symphony/ 


money. Writing music for Xavier Cugat, 
for example. It’s called paying dues. But 
jay for long and the\ 


he did not pay for long and they were not 
heavy. He befriended scholar-composer- 
conductor Gunther Schuller, who was 
shuffling jazz and symphonic traditions 
into something called “Third Stream." 
P hilhar monics did not want wading saxo- 
phones and the oboe does not fit big band 
swing, so Schuller went hunting for foun- 
dation grants to fund specific formations 


perfo rmin g Third Stream pieces composed 
by himself, John Lewis, CHI Evans, Schi- 
frin and others. Some interesting music 
was produced, but the sources dned up. 

Charlie Parker and Clifford Brown re- 
corded standards accompanied by strings. 
This was pan of a fad combining classical 
condescension and jazz paranoia. Strings 
were a symbol of social acceptance, with 
strings you were legitimate. Schifrin 
scored “Explorations," tbe drummer 
Louie Bellson with strings. Fusing drums 
and strings is not evident and Miles Davis, 


for one, was impressed. He called Schifrin 
out of the blue. “(Expletive deleted),” he 
said. “Write something like that for me." 

It never happened, but by coincidence 
they sailed from New York to Le Havre on 
the SS United States together. Miles, as 
was Ms wont, tamed an existential key. He 
did this son of tiring at all hours of tire day 
and night “I come from Dizzy ” he tdd 

Srhifrin over cn rlrf aits in dip, ghr p ’s gplnnri- 

"Dizzy comes from Roy [Eldridge] and 
Roy comes from Louis [Armstrong]" This 
was obvious to the point of banality, but 
Schifrin began to reflect on continuum. 
Schoenberg would not have happened 
without Wagner, there would have been 
no Wagner without Brahms, they aO owed 
Beethoven and Beethoven owed Mozart 
Now maybe it was time for a merger. 
Symphonic colors can inspire improvisers 
to change their tunc, and the two elements 
combined can inspire listeners. Schifrin 
wondered if MDes and Schoenberg were in 
fact leading to tbe same place, a place
